Item description for Black Heart and White Heart (Large Print) by H. Rider Haggard...
Meet the real Indiana Jones! Stephen Spielberg modeled Indiana Jones after the legendary Allan Quartermain, a dashing explorer whose wit and fast reflexes kept him alive in a variety of inhospitable circumstances. Quartermain is the hero of many stories by Rider Haggard, author of King Solomon's Minds and She, and the unchallenged master of the "lost race" adventure theme. He wrote many stories about a lengendary queen, Ayesha, "She Who Must Be Obeyed," who ruled a huge empire in central Africa, and frequently tangled with Quartermain. In this adventure, the hero narrates the story of a safari that taxes his wilderness skills to the limit and nearly ends in his death. Quartermain also tells a tale of friendship and treachery between two unlikely partners. Rider Haggard was one of the most celebrated British writers at the turn of the century. Evoking exotic, unexplored locations with rich language, he transported generations of readers to fantasy worlds far from their ordinary lives. These stories will do the same for you!
