Allan Quartermain was the original action hero. Following a mysterious map of dubious reliability, the famed English adventurer and treasure hunter leads a small group of men into the southern African bush in search of a lost comrade - and the riches contained within the fabled mines of King Solomon Trekking through the parched desert heat, then climbing through rugged frozen mountains they must overcome all Africa can to throw at them before they encounter the evil 'wise woman' - the keeper of the secret of the diamond mines. H. Rider Haggard's classic became the blueprint for every adventure story that followed, capturing the imaginations of successive generations of page-turning readers. Today, Hollywood depends on the massive success of its superhero, science fiction, and action and adventure franchises. But before RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK there was KING SOLOMON'S MINES. In this stunning new edition, illustrated by legendary comic book artist, Bryan Hitch, its widescreen, cinematic vision is celebrated.
