Overview

Prester John is an exceptionally entertaining example of an early 20th century adventure story. Its hero is a young Scotsman who travels to South Africa to make his fortune. Expecting to settle down to a quiet life as a storekeeper, he instead finds himself embroiled in a hotbed of social unrest and violence. Part mystery, part travelogue, part spy novel, part treasure hunt, it has all the makings of a crackling good read. It is firm proof that John Buchan (The Thirty-Nine Steps, Green-mantle, and so many other novels of intrigue) remains a storyteller of the first order. Prester John is a thrilling story, full of daring heroes and wondrous villains-a forgotten gem of early 20th Century literature.
