Quatermain : the Complete Adventures: 3-Child of Storm & Allan and the Holy Flower
by H. Rider Haggard




Overview -
The great man of Africa strides out with two more adventures

This is the third volume of the collected adventures of Allan Quatermain-hunter, trader, explorer and adventurer-set once again in the exotic landscape of nineteenth century South East Africa at a time when the continent was still truly 'dark'. Quatermain here ventures once more into the ever perilous lands of the mighty Zulu nation and there in 'The Child of the Storm', the first tale in this book he finds himself embroiled with a femme fatale, intrigue, treachery, sorcery and a battle for the throne of the kingship of the Zulu nation which erupts in into full scale civil war. In the second story 'Allan and the Holy Flower', our hero finds himself on the potentially more gentle activity of the quest for a rare orchid. Perhaps predictably that also involves conflict with slavers, abductions, fierce tribes, cannibalism and a demon god in the form of a giant gorilla.
