King Solomon’s Mines: Allan Quatermain tracks a missing adventurer last seen heading into the unexplored interior of remote Africa in a hunt for the fabled mines of King Solomon, the biblical king known for his wisdom. In a swashbuckling, Indiana Jones-style adventure, Allan sets out with the promise of a share in a treasure and departs with a map he’s never really taken seriously. His group style themselves "white men from the stars" – sorcerer-gods – and are brought before the violent ruler King Twala in one of the many adventures along their journey. (Published 1885)

King Solomon's Mines, which dates to the 1890s, was probably the basis for the Indiana Jones movies. It begins with a quest for the brother of Sir Henry Curtis -- who disappeared in Kukuanaland searching for King Solomon's mines. Curtis, Allan Quatermain, and Captain John Good nearly die of thirst in the desert, nearly freeze to death on the mountains, and nearly get killed in a massive civil war in Kukuanaland -- and finally make it to King Solomon's mine, where Gagool, the evil witch doctor seals them in. . . .
