Description
Allan Quatermain, Rider Haggard's famous protagonist, is an English-born professional big game hunter and occasional trader in southern Africa. Largely considered to be the character on which Indiana Jones was based, at the beginning of this adventure Quatermain has lost his only son and longs to get back to the wilderness. He persuades some old friends to embark on a gruelling expedition to find a lost East African kingdom involving sensational fights, terrible dangers and extraordinary escapes.
