Overview

Swashbuckling adventure ensues in Georges, a riveting novel from the same author that wrote The Three Musketeers.  In Georges, Alexandre Dumas pulls out all the stops for this story of passion, identity, and racism.

A sensitive boy of mixed race, Georges Munier moves within the highest ranks of social circles in France and England before returning to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.  There he falls in love with Sara.  The only problem is: she’s engaged to the son of the powerful plantation owner, Monsier de Malmédie.  What follows is a story of a slave rebellion, duels, and battles at sea.

Meet the Author

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a volcanic producer of plays, novels, journalism and other writings, and one of the dominant figures of the Romantic period. He showed the way for later historical novelists, traveling widely in search of material and background and employing a series of collaborators and researchers. Not simply an armchair adventurer, Dumas participated in the revolutions of 1830 and 1848, and later ran guns for Giuseppe Garibaldi.

A really exciting and important book; seems like it should be better known.  Would make a great film too!
