Biographical Novel of Chaka! Chaka, Zulu! Was the most watched television series in history! Fans will thrill at this biographical novel by a man who knew Chaka's brother, his inner council, and his warriors. An African Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, and Napoleon--all rolled into one! Hero, villain, genius, madman. Chaka has been called them all. Few figures in the history of the world are as fascinating as that of Chaka, the Zulu king, who built a bloody empire in Africa in the mid-1800s on the bodies of millions of slaughtered victims. Few books have captured him in all his glory and horror as vividly and well as Chaka: Zulu King. This book chronicles the rise and fall of Chaka, but also tells the tender love story of Umslopogaas, Chaka's son, and Nada, the Lily, most beautiful of Zulu maidens. Chaka: Zulu King was recognized as a masterpiece when it was first published in 1891. Literary critic Walter Besant hailed it as "a perfect mirror of the Zulu as he was before he was touched by [Western] civilization." The famed fantasy author, Andrew Lang, raved, "How delicious a novel all Zulu, without a white face in it..."
