ΒΆ A later novel by Haggard featuring Allan Quatermain, the main character in KING SOLOMON'S MINES. The plot concerns Quatermain as a young man and involves his first marriage, to the Boer farm girl, Marie Marais. Their romance is opposed by Marie's anti-English father, and her villainous cousin Hernan Pereira, who desires Marie. They are Voortrekkers who take part in the Great Trek whom Quatermain has to rescue. The story also describes Quatermain's involvement in the Sixth Xhosa War of 1835 and the Weenen massacre. This copy is from From the Stuart Teitler collection of Lost Race Fiction; although the novel does not appear to contain any particular Lost Race content, Stuart did often consider Lost Cultures - in the case the Zulu Empire - qualifying as Lost Race.
