King Solomon, the Bible's wisest king, was possessed of extraordinary wealth. The grand temple he built in Jerusalem was covered in gold. Over the ages, many have sought to find the source of the great king's wealth -- but none with so much flair, wit, or whimsy as Tahir Shah. Intrigued by a map he finds in a shop not far from the site of the temple, Shah assembles a multitude of clues to the location of Solomon's mines. From ancient texts to modern hearsay, all point across the Red Sea to Ethiopia. Shah's trail takes him on a wild ride by taxi, bus, camel, and donkey to the gold-bearing corners of this storied and beautiful country. He interviews the hyena man of Harar, is hauled up on a rope to enter a remote cliff-face monastery, and stumbles upon an illegal gold mine where thousands of men, women, and children dig with their hands. But the hardest leg of the journey is to the accursed mountain of Tullu Wallel, where legend says the devil keeps watch over the entrance to an ancient mine shaft... Book jacket.

Im Mexiko des endenden 19. Jahrhunderts versucht der entmachtete Azteken-Kaiser Ignatio ein Indianerreich neu zu errichten, das sich der Legende zufolge, von Ozean zu Ozean erstrecken soll, wenn beide Hälften eines geteilten Kleinods wieder zusammengefügt werden. Zusammen mit seinem englischen Freund James Strickland begibt er sich als der Hüter der einen Hälfte auf die Reise zu der legendenumwobenen Stadt „Das Herz der Welt“. Als die beiden Freunde in die Hände einer gefährlichen Bande von Mördern und Schmugglern geraten, gelingt es ihnen, einen indianischen Stammesfürsten und dessen schöne Tochter Maya zu befreien. Daraufhin verbündet sich Ignatio mit seinen neuen Freunden und Reisegefährten, um die getrennten Hälften wieder zu vereinen und so die Legende wahr werden zu lassen. Doch als die Gefährten nach vielen Abenteuern die geheimnisvolle Stadt erreichen, geraten sie in eine gefährliche politische Intrige ... Diese Ausgabe dieses klassischen Abenteuerromans beruht auf der ersten Übersetzung aus dem Jahr 1895. Anhand der englischen Originalausgabe wurde der Text vervollständigt und zum Teil neu übersetzt. Der Roman wurde, dem Erzählstil angemessen, leicht modernisiert und in die neue deutsche Rechtschreibung übertragen, so dass er auch heute noch mit Vergnügen gelesen werden kann. Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1926) war einer der bedeutendsten britischen Abenteuerschriftsteller des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zunächst arbeitete er als Sekretär für den Gouverneur in Natal, Südafrika. Während seiner späteren Laufbahn als Beamter wurde Haggard mit den Auseinandersetzungen der Buren mit der einheimischen Bevölkerung konfrontiert. Er interessierte sich nicht nur für die Probleme des Landes, sondern auch für die Kultur der Zulu, die er in seinen Afrika-Romanen beschreibt. „Heart of the World“, so der englische Originaltitel, ist ein weiterer beliebter Titel von Henry Rider Haggard und liegt hiermit erstmals als deutschsprachige E-Book-Ausgabe vor.

Rider Haggard Allan Quatermain is the protagonist of H. Rider Haggard's 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines and its sequels. Allan Quatermain was also the title of a book in this sequence.The character Quatermain is an English-born professional big game hunter and occasional trader in southern Africa, who supports colonial efforts to spread civilization in the Dark Continent, though he also favours native Africans having a say in their affairs. An outdoorsman who finds English cities and climate unbearable, he prefers to spend most of his life in Africa, where he grew up under the care of his widower father, a Christian missionary. In the earliest-written novels, native Africans refer to Quatermain as Macumazahn, meaning "Watcher-by-Night," a reference to his nocturnal habits and keen instincts. In later-written novels, Macumazahn is said to be a short form of Macumazana, meaning "One who stands out." Quatermain is frequently accompanied by his native servant, the Hottentot Hans, a wise and caring family retainer from his youth. His sarcastic comments offer a sharp critique of European conventions. In his final adventures, Quatermain is joined by two British companions, Sir Henry Curtis and Captain John Good of the Royal Navy, and by his African friend Umslopogaas.
