The gifted romanticist, Talbot Mundy, offers in these pages an epic adventure spanning Africa, the Middle East, and Armenia in the early years of the 20th century. Mundy draws on a combination of personal experience and political conviction in portraying four fortune-hunters, Englishmen and American, who encounter colonial brutality in Africa, then join the defense of Armenia against Turkish genocide. This is the first book publication of this entire saga from the original magazine serialization, and includes an introduction by Mundy biographer Brian Taves explaining the genesis and impact of the stories.
