Nearly four thousand years old. Within it lie the clues to a fabulous treasure from an almost forgotten time. Books The Seventh Scroll. Book 2 in the Egyptian Series. Nearly four thousand years old. A fading legacy from beyond the grave.
The Seventh Scroll is his story, and was translated and given to author Wilbur Smith to publish as the "fictional" "The River God". Baddies kill one of the architects and steal the scroll. I really wanted to find an unabridged audio version, but apparently there isn't one. It was nice to be able to read this unabridged on my Kindle for Mac app.
Son of Herbert and Elfreda Lawrence James Smith, Wilbur Addison Smith was born in Broken Hill, Zambia, on the 9th of January 1933. The young Wilbur graduated in Commercial Sciences in 1954 at the Natal and Rhodes University. Once he graduated, he joined the Goodyear Tires and Rubber Co. of Port Elisabeth, where he worked from 1954 until 1958. He then became a member of the H. J. Smith and Son Ltd. of Salisbury (Zambia) and worked for the company until 1963. Finally, the most recent adaptations: River God (published in the year 1993) and The Seventh-Scroll (published in the year 1995) were converted into a mini series titled The Seventh Scroll, which was released in 1999. The author does another intriguing thing in this book. He inserts himself into his own fiction, having a main character refer to Wilbur Smith as having authored the fictional "River God" from information uncovered in the first 6 scrolls found in the tomb. Of course it is the 7th scroll that the characters are after in this second book.
