King Solomon's Mines tells of a search of an unexplored region of Africa by a group of adventurers led by Allan Quatermain for the missing brother of one of the party. It is the first English adventure novel set in Africa, and is considered to be the genesis of the Lost World literary genre.

Excerpt:
Then there remains the most interesting subject - that, as it is, has only been touched on incidentally - of the magnificent system of military organisation in force in that country, which, in my opinion, is much superior to that inaugurated by Chaka in Zululand, inasmuch as it permits of even more rapid mobilisation, and does not necessitate the employment of the pernicious system of forced celibacy. Lastly, I have scarcely spoken of the domestic and family customs of the Kukuanas, many of which are exceedingly quaint, or of their proficiency in the art of smelting and welding metals. This science they carry to considerable perfection, of which a good example is to be seen in their "tollas," or heavy throwing knives, the backs of these weapons being made of hammered iron, and the edges of beautiful steel welded with great skill on to the iron frames. The fact of the matter is, I thought, with Sir Henry Curtis and Captain Good, that the best plan would be to tell my story in a plain, straightforward manner, and to leave these matters to be dealt with subsequently in whatever way ultimately may appear to be desirable. In the meanwhile I shall, of course, be delighted to give all information in my power to anybody interested in such things.
And now it only remains for me to offer apologies for my blunt way of writing.

ظاهرا تنها کتابی که از این نویسنده به فارسی ترجمه شده است همین کتاب گنحهای حضرت سلیمان است. البته این کتاب مشهور ترین اثر این نویسنده نیست و آثاری مانند she, Allan quatermain آثار مشهورتری از این نویسنده است. رایدر هاگارد در توصیف صحنه های مختلف داستان مهارت به سزایی دارد بطوریکه خواننده حین خواندن داستان کاملا در بحر آن فرو رفته و گاهی خود را در میان حوادث داستان جزئی از اجزا آن می پندارد.
