She and Allan (Paperback)
"An imaginative, entertaining adventure story."-E.F. Bleiler
"Enchantment is just what this writer exercised; he fixed pictures in our minds that thirty years have been unable to wear away."-Graham Green
She and Allan is one of H. Rider Haggard's most exciting novels of adventure and romance. In bringing together two of his most compelling characters, Allan Quatermain, the quirky English Big-Game hunter and explorer, and the seductive and iconic supernatural African Queen Ayesha, or popularly know as "she-who-must-be-obeyed", Haggard has created one of the most exciting stories in his body of work.
When Allan Quatermain seeks out the Zulu witch-doctor Zikali in the south of Africa to determine if he can communicate with the dead, he is instructed to travel to a lost kingdom deep in the interior of Africa. Zikali reveals that the truth of his inquiry will only be revealed if Quatermain delivers a message to a mysterious and supernatural white sorceress who rules over a tribe living in the ruins of an ancient city. Quatermain sets out on a perilous journey through uncharted lands full of cannibals, wild beasts, and treacherous brushes with death. When he finally reaches the rubble of the lost kingdom of K r, he is summoned into the presence of the immortal Queen Ayesha, "she-who-must-be-obeyed," and is requested to lead her army into battle against the dreaded kingdom of Rezu. A spellbinding tale of supernatural fiction, She and Allan is one of the most intriguing and exotic works of early 20th century Fantasy.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of She and Allan is both modern and readable.
