Description

In his rough-rider style, H. Rider Haggard delivers the saga of Hubert of Hastings, discovered on a rotting parchment in a Peruvian tomb. Hubert is a humble fisherman descended from Viking conquerors. As the French invade England, Hubert is cast to his fate. His fortunes might swell with love, strength, and wealth, but Hubert is forced from his homeland. The son of Vikings forges his destiny in an ancient and opulent civilization ─ the Incas of Peru ─ and the outcast seeks solace in the arms of a forbidden lover. Annotations unique to this Reginetta Press edition: ─Transcribed directly from the 1922 First Edition, this version corrects numerous typographical errors inherent in that original document. Some of these initial errors have been overlooked by previous publications, including that of Project Gutenberg.─Includes "Timeline of Historical Events Pertaining to The Virgin of the Sun," setting the story into historical context and exhibiting the sources of its inspiration, which occurred over 12 centuries
