King Solomon and the Showman
The Search for Africa's Lost City
Adam Cruise

12 Oct 2016

Latest News

The lost city of southern Africa and its untold riches fascinated the Romans, European explorers and writers such as Rider Haggard, Alan Paton, Wilbur Smith and Lawrence Green. Even the apartheid government searched for it in vain.

Adam Cruise sets out on a quest across the Kalahari to find the mythical city that inspired "King Solomon's Mines"�, and the Great Farini, the daredevil showman of the Victorian age at the heart of the legend. On the way, Cruise runs into lions and snakes, battles savage desert conditions, and ends up somewhere more extraordinary than the Fabled City.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Adam Cruise is a conservation and travel writer, who works for a variety of magazines and newspapers. His books include  the well-received "Louis Botha's War"� in 2015 and "In the Pursuit of Solitude"�. He was born in Johannesburg and studied at the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University. He currently lives in Nice, France.
