The People of the Mist is a classic Rider Haggard tale of a British adventurer seeking wealth in the wilds of Africa, finding romance, and discovering a lost race and its monstrous god.
A good copy. The book is in sound shape but has discolouration to the upper board along the joint, to the spine and spotted fading to the rear board. The pages lightly foxed to the edges but the book is in strong readable condition.
