The Ball of Snow is a travelogue written by Alexandre Dumas and first published in 1903. It is a chronicle of his 1858 trip across the Caucasus, and details his experiences hunting, attending Russian dances, skirting around battles, and braving the elements. An enjoyable and fascinating read, The Ball of Snow is highly recommended for fans of travel writing. Sultanetta is a novella inspired by a classic Russian novel. Alexandre Dumas (1802 1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo." Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless due to his lavish lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures. Many classic books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author."
