Publisher Description

'The Cossacks' by Leo Tolstoy is a short novel published in 1863 in the famous artistic magazine called 'The Russian Messenger. The novel is accepted to be fairly personal, with many accepting that the personality of Olenin, a well-off Muscovite who enlists in the military looking for a more legitimate life, was propelled by the creator's wild ways in his youth. The occasions of the book are approximately founded on Tolstoy's encounters in the Caucasus during the Caucasian conflict.
