Overview

Sir Henry Rider Haggard KBE (1856-1925) was a Victorian writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations. After failing his army entrance exam he was sent to a private 'crammer' in London to prepare for the entrance exam for the British Foreign Office, for which he never sat. Haggard's father sent him to Africa in an unpaid position as assistant to the secretary to Lieutenant-Governor of Natal Sir Henry Bulwer. Heavily influenced by the larger-than-life adventurers he met in Colonial Africa, the great mineral wealth discovered in Africa, and the ruins of ancient lost civilizations in Africa such as Great Zimbabwe, Haggard created his Allan Quatermain adventures. Haggard also wrote about agricultural and social issues reform, in part inspired by his experiences in Africa, but also based on what he saw in Europe. Haggard is most famous as the author of the best-selling novel King Solomon's Mines (1885). Amongst his other works are She (1887), Allan Quatermain (1888), Eric Brighteyes (1891) and Ayesha (1895).

    Morning starr notes

    The wolves live in a place called the Forest of emerald Ice. The two largest packs, the Pack of the waterfall and the Pack of The eclipse are constantly at war, and have been for many generations. There used to be a dominant pack calle the Pack of the MorningStarr, but it was all but wiped out by a disease that hit the wolf packs three years ago . Supposedly none survived... alsi, the alphas pass down thwir rank to their pups- the beta rank is passed down through bloodlines also, and the beta only takes command of the pack if the heir to aplhahood is nonexistent or underage.

    "Corn" was the generic English term for crops used to make bread, eg. wheat, barley, etc. (Note story of Joseph in KJV translation.) It was used for maize much later after its introduction to Europe from the Americas.
