When two men approach adventurer Allan Quartermain to lead an expedition into unexplored areas of Africa in search of a man lost while trying to find the fabled treasure horde located at King Solomon's Mines, Quartermain agrees to be their guide. Armed with a map that purports to show the way to this legendary treasure and aided by a mysterious local named Umbopa, the men set out on an adventure into the darkest regions of Africa.
H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines is widely acknowledged as the first work in what would come to be known as the Lost World literary genre, and inspired other famous works such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World, Edgar Rice Burroughs' The Land that Time Forgot, and H. P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness.
