In Alexandre Dumas' swashbuckling epic, a young Gascon nobleman, d'Artagnan, not yet twenty, sets off for Paris in hopes of joining the Musketeers, that legion of heroes highly favored by the king and feared by the evil Cardinal Richelieu. By fighting alongside his comrades as they battle their enemies, d'Artagnan proves he has the heart of a Musketeer and earns himself a place in their ranks. And soon d'Artagnan and the gallant trio are relying on their wits and skills with the sword to preserve the honor of the king and thwart the wicked schemes of Cardinal Richelieu.
With this classic tale, Dumas embroidered upon history a colorful world of swordplay, intrigue, and romance which earned The Three Musketeers its reputation as the most thrilling adventure novel ever written.
