Buchan, John: Prester John. v1. 20 Dec 07

I hope I'm not stepping on any toes by posting this Buchan book. I noticed that there are other John Buchan books being posted, but I really couldn't wait to read this one. And since I formatted it for myself, I figured I would post it and save others the trouble.

This author is new to me. After this I finish this book, I am going to rapidly devour the other ones that have been posted on here.

From description at Amazon:
Nineteen-year-old David Crawfurd travels from Scotland to South Africa to seek his fortune as a store-keeper. He encounters John Laputa, a celebrated Zulu minister, of whom he has strange memories. In his remote store, David finds himself with the key to a massive uprising led by the minister, who has taken the title of the mythical priest-king, Prester John. David's courage and his understanding of this man take him to the heart of the uprising, a secret cave in the Rooirand.

This is a story of lost civilizations, hidden treasures, friendship and betrayal, lions and tigers, witch doctors, and just good old-fashioned adventure.

John Buchan wrote Prester John, his sixth novel, in 1910, seven years after he returned from South Africa. It was his first to reach a wide readership across the world, and it established him as the writer of the fast-paced adventures for which he is famous.

Note: Modern readers should know that Buchan used some racist sentiments completely common at the time.
