About This Book

First published in 1894, The People of the Mist is an exciting story about a British adventurer who goes to Africa to seek his fortune, but who finds love and a legendary tribe who worship a giant crocodile god. When Leonard Outram loses both his inheritance and his fiancée he determines to go to Africa, which for an Englishman at this time was a land of opportunity, this being the period of the ‘Scramble for Africa.’ With his Zulu companion, Otter, he saves a young Portuguese woman, Juanna Rodd, from slavery and together they go in search of the People of the Mist, who are said to possess a hoard of fabulous jewels. When they find them, they are plunged into the midst of a power-struggle between the king and the priests of the crocodile god. A ripping yarn in classic ‘Boy’s Own’ style, this is a thrilling story from the pen of one of English literature greatest adventure novelists.
