Front Cover
Pure Snow Publishing, 1977 - Fiction - 600 pages

"The Count of Monte Cristo" - a sizeable adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas - with a huge cast of characters, all revolving around the young sailor Edmond Dantès. Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of the island prison, Chateau d'If. He survives years of cramped confinement and eventually befriends another prisoner, an Italian who knows the location of a vast treasure on the island of Monte Cristo. After an intrepid escape, Dantès makes plans to unearth the treasure, become a count, and use his new found wealth to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration.


“The Count of Monte Cristo” is an ageless tale of adventure filled with revenge, mercy, courage, and hope. It endures as one of the classics of world literature, and is one of Alexandre Dumas’ most loved stories.
