About Book

Book Description
Allan Quartermain returns in another adventure! After he finds an illusive and rare orchid from Africa, he returns to England with Mr. Scroope. While he visits Lord Randall, two foreigners come asking for Macumazana -- that is, asking for Allan Quartermain by the name he used umong the Africans. The two visitors are Harût and Marût, priests and doctors of the White Kendah People, and they have come to ask Allan Quartermain for his help. The White Kendah people are at war with the Black Kendah people who have an evil spirit for a god. And that spirit of the god resides in the largest elephant they have ever seen, an elephant that no man can kill -- save Allan Quartermain. And now our intrepid hero must return to Africa and destroy this evil spirit before it kills every one of the White Kendah People.

H. Rider Haggard was an English author known for his fantastic adventure stories as well as his sympathetic portrayal of native peoples. He is best known for creating the fictional character Allan Quartermain, a character that has been resurrected as a comic book hero in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The Ivory Child is the sequel to The Holy Flower and the ninth novel in the Allan Quartermain series.

Look here, Mr. Quatermain, you were always a bit of a sportsman, and I'll make you an offer. If I kill more birds than you do to-day, you shall promise to hold your tongue about my affairs in South Africa; and if you kill more than I do, you shall still hold your tongue, but I will pay you that £250 and interest for six years.
