Book Description:
' . . . and now the swordsman met,' said the storyteller, 'and the ground echoed beneath their rapid footfalls as they stamped around. Then there was a lunge and a sharp nerve tingling scrape as one blade ran along the other; and then, without a groan, down fell one of these brave warriors flat upon his back upon the grass, the wild flowers, and bits of bark. 'Instantly the impulses of a woman flashed through every vein and nerve of that onlooking girl. Springing out from her leafy concealment, she knelt beside the fallen man. The other soldier sprang back; for it seemed as though there had suddenly appeared before him a being from another world!' John Gayther and the Mistress of the House tend the terraced gardens, surrounded by red tassels of currant bush and the overpowering sweetness of the lilies. Yet the luxuriant vegetation is more than matched by the richness of storytelling the garden inspires. Tales of far off places, kings, and hermit's daughters spill off the lips of the gardeners and their visitors, in this vibrant concoction by American novelist Frank R. Stockton (1834 1902), author of the popular Rudder Grange.
