Novels III The Mahatma and the Hare Barbara Who Came Back The Witch s Head

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set mostly in Africa, and a founder of the Lost World literary genre. This volume contains three famous novels by Haggard. The Mahatma and the Hare is the story of the selfcalled mahatma— a spiritual man who is able, when asleep, to view "The Great White Road" on which the souls of those recently departed enter heaven. Barbara Who Came Back is the story of Septimus Walrond, who was returning from a professional visit to a distant cottage upon the coast of East Anglia. His errand had been sad, to baptise the dying infant of a fisherman. And The Witch's Head is the second novel by Haggard, which he wrote just prior to King Solomon's Mines. Zulu magic comes to the British Fenlands, as the severed head of a sorcerer casts a spell from beyond the grave. The story sweeps from England to the South African setting.
