In this adventure novel we follow Allan Quatermain, a character appearing in other Haggard novels. Allan finds English cities and climate unbearable, he prefers to spend most of his life in Africa, where he grew up. Native Africans refer to Quatermain as Macumazahn, meaning watcher by night, a reference to his nocturnal habits and keen instincts.
