Publisher's Summary

A bold elephant hunter journeys to an unknown land in search of fabled lost treasure. But terrible dangers threaten anyone who approaches the wonderful diamond mines of King Solomon.This great African adventure novel is an enduring favorite among those who love excitement and romance. It is filled with qualities close to the human heart: the spirit of adventure and discovery, the desire for immortality, primal terror, and the search for the primitive. Few knew the Dark Continent as Haggard did; his experience of savage life and wild lands lends a visceral credibility that makes us believe the impossible. Yet beyond all this lies a feeling for the supernatural. Adventure alone was not enough for Haggard: "The thing must have a heart."

Huzzah for good audiobooks!

What an audiobook!
This classical story of Allan Quatermain's adventure through unexplored Africa is just a splendid, and the narrator, Mr. Rudnicki, did a wonderful work filling the audio with life and excitement. If you want to get lost for 8 and a half hour in a brilliant classic adventure, then this is what you need.

I have to admit that my workday has never gone by so quickly, more than 8 hours and I didn't notice a thing. Huzzah for good audiobooks!
