Summary

Summary

With all the adventure and suspense of an Indiana Jones movie, this 1885 novel recounts the journey of four men-three Englishmen and a regal native named Umbopa-who enter Africa's dark interior in search of the original site of King Solomon's Mines, reputed to be the location for a great stockpile of diamonds. Who and what these unlikely companions encounter along the way is the stuff of high adventure, one of the great jungle epics of all time.
