Overview

Ayesha Series: She, Ayesha: The Return of She, She and Allan by H. Rider Haggard

This collection contains three of H. Rider Haggard's novels in the Ayesha series:

She
Ayesha: The Return of She
She and Allan

She was first serialized in The Graphic magazine from October 1886 to January 1887. She is one of the classics of imaginative literature, and with over 83 million copies sold in 44 different languages, one of the best-selling books of all time. Extraordinarily popular upon its release, She has never been out of print. According to the literary historian Andrew M. Stauffer, "She has always been Rider Haggard's most popular and influential novel, challenged only by King Solomon's Mines in this regard".

The story follows the journey of Horace Holly and his ward Leo Vincey to a lost kingdom in the African interior. There, they encounter a primitive race of natives and a mysterious white queen, Ayesha, who reigns as the all-powerful "She", or "She-who-must-be-obeyed".

Ayesha, the Return of She was serialised in the Windsor Magazine in 1904-5.

She and Allan brings together Haggard's two most popular characters, Ayesha from She and Allan Quatermain from King Solomon's Mines.
