Marie: An Episode in the Life of the Late Allan Quatermain
Allan Quatermain, hero of King Solomon's mines, tells a moving tale of his first wife, the Dutch born Marie Marais, and the adventures that were linked to her beautiful, tragic history. This moving story depicts the tumultuous political era of the 1830's involving the trek-Boers, French colonists and the Zulu tribe in the Cape colony of South Africa. Hate and suspicion run high between the home government and the Dutch subjects.
