Aside from the ethnocentric views and some racist references common to the time period this was written, this story was such a terrific adventure, full of danger, sorrow, grief, terror, romance, loyalty, & treachery it was a real page-turner. Haggard's true anti- slavery views emerge early on, and the characters neither love, respect nor despise each other based on race or culture but on their actual qualities and relationships. So while the white narrator refers to everyone else as savages, it is meant as a contrast to "civilized", and does not have anything to do with being moral or evil. Many of the evil characters are European slavers, and one of the noblest characters is a tribal king who loves our female protagonist, and the bravest, strongest and most loyal is an outcast African dwarf who is the follower/servant of the main character, and is acknowledged as his best friend. He is also indispensible to the story as well as to Leonard. There is plenty of emotion in this story, misunderstandings, human weakness, poor judgement and self-sacrifice as well. Highly recommend this book. I had previously only read King Solomon's Mines.

WHEN I FIRST READ THIS BOOK IT WAS MISSING ABOUT TWENTY PAGES,AND I LOOKED HARD FOR MONTHS TIL I FOUND IT AND IT TURNED ME ON TOO MOST OF HIS NOVELS. IN THIS BOOK YOU CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE THAT KING TO BE OTTER. I BELIEVE HAGGARD KNEW T.V AND MOVIES WHERE ON THE WAY, BECAUSE THIS WOULD BE A GREAT MOVIE OR MINI-SERIES.
