The author is Sir Donald Mackenzie Wallace:
Sir Donald Mackenzie Wallace KCIE KCVO (11 November 1841 - 10 January 1919) was a Scottish public servant, writer, editor and foreign correspondent of The Times (London).
Wallace accepted a private invitation to visit Russia, having a strong desire to study the Ossetes, a tribe of Iranian descent in the Caucasus. Living in Russia from early 1870 until late 1875, Wallace found the Russian civilization far more interesting than his original Ossetes.
