Read an excerpt
I’m sure I’ve told you this, but you’ve probably forgotten – “King Solomon’s Mines” was the first movie I ever saw. I was six years old, and it was the most amazing, thrilling thing imaginable. For weeks afterwards, I had dreams almost every night about it. I was always Allan Quartermain’s clever, plucky daughter, right next to him exploring dark jungles, escaping from stampeding elephants, sneaking through booby-trapped ancient temples and fighting it out with bandits and tomb-robbers.
I saw it again when I was sixteen, and I had dreams for weeks afterwards then, too. But I wasn’t Allan Quartermain’s daughter anymore. Do I need to say anything more? I’m sure you can guess what those dreams were like. And, to tell you the truth, I still have them every so often. Sometimes Howard is Allan Quartermain – but sometimes it’s Stewart Granger. What can I say? You never forget your first…never mind, I’m getting off track here. I’m just glad Howard’s asleep and he can’t see how red I am right now.
Anyway, I suppose I was just enthralled by the idea of archaeology, even though there was a distinct lack of ancient temples, stampeding elephants and bandits in the article. It was still fascinating, and the most fascinating thing was that they welcomed volunteers – regular, average untrained people could come and dig with them…
