Description

If H. Rider Haggard--one of the greatest adventure writers of all time--is remembered now, it is for his novels featuring Allan Quatermain, a heroic adventurer whose exploits in Africa form the most important sequence of Haggard's books. Quatermain's adventures are chronicled in such novels as King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quaterman, She, and 11 others. In When the World Shook, Haggard takes his popular formula for Victorian adventure fiction into the contemporary world, with this tale of three modern-day English adventurers who find an ancient god (complete with beautiful daughter) asleep beneath a South Seas volcano.... Written late in his life, When the World Shook is perhaps the most current of all of Haggard's novels; it features many contemporary inventions, from aeroplanes to cameras, as well as Haggard's trademark gripping storytelling and likeable, sympathetic characters. "His tales remain powerfully in the memory..." --The Encyclopedia of Fantasyshow more
