About Book

Book Description
A collection of six classic short stories from Edith Wharton, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Age of Innocence. Includes "The Last Asset," "In Trust," "The Pretext, "The Verdict," "The Pot-Boiler," and "The Best Man." In the title story, "The Hermit and the Wild Woman," the reader learns that the “hermit,” as a young boy, witnessed the killing of his parents and sister during an attack on his town. As a result of his trauma, he has retreated into isolation--until he meets a "wild woman" who comes to live nearby. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

Download Description
When the Hermit was a lad, and lived in the town, the crenellations of the walls had been square-topped, and a Guelf lord had flown his standard from the keep. Then one day a steel-coloured line of men-at-arms rode across the valley, wound up the hill and battered in the gates. Stones and Greek fire rained from the ramparts, shields clashed in the streets, blade sprang at blade in passages and stairways.
