Many years ago George Curtis set out for South Africa in the wild hope of making a fortune. Since then his brother, Sir Henry Curtis, has not seen or heard of him.
Sir Henry and his friend, Captain Good, decide that sitting around waiting is doing no good, and set out to find him. As luck would have it they meet Allan Quatermain, an experienced elephant hunter, who encountered the missing brother many years earlier. He had told Quatermain that he was searching for the mines of King Solomon - diamond mines, which most people believe to be a myth.
With a glimmer of hope, and an idea which way he had headed, our heroic trio venture out into the unexplored regions of Africa. Their quest takes them into the very heart of danger.
Unbelievable adventures follow involving ancient tribes, terrifying Kings and evil witches. Will our adventurers find George and the treasures rumored to be hidden in King Solomon's Mines? Or will the obstacles they experience prove too much for them?
Alan Quartermain, gentleman adventurer, is retained by two Englishmen to locate a missing man: the brother of one of them has disappeared into the heart of Africa while on a hunt for the lost mines of King Solomon. Joining up with a Zulu named Umslopogaas, the three follow a trail of fabulous wealth. The first volume of a series of 10 about Quartermain and his friends.
