Allan's Wife

by H. Rider Haggard

Elephants, lions, baboons, and other fauna of the African wilds abound on these pages, and we have a Zulu impi and the resulting carnage described with the author's usual vivid power of narration. Our old friend, Allan Quatermain, figures as the hero throughout, and the most substantial part of the volume is occupied with the story of his wooing, and the brief episode of his married life. The romance, however, is subsidiary to the sauce piquante of livelier incidents.
