H. Rider Haggard Quotes

 

Sir Henry Rider Haggard, better known as H. Rider Haggard, was an English writer of adventure novels.  He was born in 1856 and died in 1925.

He was born at Bradenham, Norfolk.  In his youth Haggard traveled to South Africa to work in the British government.  Later he would draw upon his experiences and knowledge of Africa as a writer.  He married Marianna Louisa Margitson in 1880.  The couple had a son named Jack (who died of measles at age 10) and three daughters, Angela, Dorothy and Lilias.

King Solomon’s Mines, one of his most famous books, was published in 1885 and introduced the character of Allan Quatermain.

Out of the dark we came, into the dark we go. Like a storm-driven bird at night we fly out of the Nowhere; for a moment our wings are seen in the light of the fire, and, lo! we are gone again into the Nowhere. ~ King Solomon’s Mines by H. Rider Haggard
