This is a thrilling retelling of the classic adventure story by H. Rider Haggard, in the popular Young Reading series. Allan Quatermain is on a rescue mission in the heart of Africa. The quest for a missing aristocrat leads him through scorching deserts, across frozen mountains and into the middle of a lost tribe's civil war. But the greatest dangers of all await the adventurer and his friends at the chilling King Solomon's Mines. It is full of 'boys own' style action and excitement, skilfully brought to life by colourful, modern illustrations.
