The third of the Richard Hannay books by John Buchan. This book was published in 1924 and reflects the attitudes of that time. If you are offended by antiquated views of a racist nature don't read this book.
The beginning is a bit slow as the scene is set, but the adventure and suspense begins to build up and the when you think it is all over, there is a bit more. The grand finale is well worth the effort of reading this book. I found it full of suspense and accepted the antiquated views of society as a reflection of that era. A good read

Prester John is a boys adventure story about a youth sent to Africa to earn his living. He becomes involved in mystery an uprising and treasure, nearly dies and emerges a well respected man. A good read.
