'Allan and the Holy Flower' tells the tale of Haggard’s glorious adventure hero Allan Quatermain. Allan receives a flower from Brother John and is ready to travel to Britain and meet with an orchid collector. Back in England, the collector tells him that he is ready to finance an expedition to find out more about this holy flower. What follows is a series of perilous adventures and close encounters with the local wildlife infused with Haggard’s trademark razor-sharp wit. Many readers will be reminded of George Lucas’ Indiana Jones while reading Quatermain’s adventures. Compelling and highly entertaining, 'Allan and the Holy Flower' is a perfect continuation to Allan’s adventures in Africa. H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was an English adventure fiction and non-fiction writer. His works include short stories and novels that have influenced adult and children’s literature alike. Considered a pioneer in the lost world literary genre, his stories are often set in exotic locations, primarily Africa. Haggard’s stories have been adapted into films countless times. The Ayesha novel series has seen several film adaptations, including She (1965) starring Peter Cushing and Ursula Andress, based loosely on the books. [Elib]
