His new employers, Sir Henry Curtis and Captain John Good, have a map--drawn by a dying Portuguese prospector. It reveals a route across the great desert, past a fearsome range of mountain, to the greatest treasure in all Africa--the lost diamond mines of King Solomon himself!
Inspired by true adventures, King Solomon's Mines is the unsurpassed classic of a journey into the unknown heart of the Dark Continent.

Probably the first of the "Lost World" genre, a better story than Mr. Rider's "She". Although pretty dated (written in the late 1800's I think) it was at least entertaining. Read full review
