: : : : Well - I have absolutely no idea!!! I have never been able to get hold of it! It is not one of his more famous works - and it seems very hard to find. As far as I know, it is a set of 9 or so novels set in the 1820's but that is as much as I can tell you I am afraid.
: : : : Anyone else out there with more information??
: : : : HM
: : : Hi -

: There is a city in Texas named Dumas. (I'm sure it was named after this famous author. Why else would anyone name anything Dumas?) Clabert lives in Texas. Clabert met Mark A. Baker. Mark Baker advised DDL in all things muskety in LOTM.

Seriously, does it have anything to do with Mark Twain?
