About Book

Book Description
1901. A collection of stories by the American clergyman, educator, and author. In this book, Van Dyke wants to tell about ruling passions from the perspective of characters who are chosen for the most part among plain people, because their feelings are expressed with fewer words and greater truth, not being costumed for social effect. The scene is laid on Nature's stage because he likes to be out-of-doors. Contents: A Lover of Music; The Reward of Virtue; A Brave Heart; The Gentle Life; A Friend of Justice; The White Blot; A Year of Nobility; and The Keeper of the Light. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
