His adventures featuring Allan Quatermain-the little white hunter, trader and explorer are justly famous and appear as a collected set in their entirety from Leonaur. For some that generous helping of African adventures simply will not be sufficient. Although Haggard was a prolific author not all of his material is familiar or available to those who would enjoy it. Leonaur has gathered together Haggards other adventures set in Africa into one collection of four books available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.In this, the first volume, readers will find Swallow, an exciting story of the Great Trek of the pioneer Boers into the interior of southern Africa where they would meet all the dangers the natural world could contrive and the fierce native martial nation of the Zulus. The second novel in this volume, Benita bears all the hallmarks of a classic Haggard tale. Readers will be pleased to discover an adventure of the supernatural, lost and hidden peoples and stupendous treasure that is a compelling page turner to its conclusion.
