The Ivory Childby H. Rider Haggard
The author writes, "It is enough to say that when Allan Quatermain, in the opening sentence of his narrative, speaks of this as 'one of the strangest of all the adventures which have befallen me in the course of a life, that so far can scarcely be called tame or humdrum,' he is well within the mark."
