Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

I have married a mountain woman," he wrote. "None of your puny breed of modern femininity, but a remnant left over from the heroic ages, -- a primitive woman, grand and vast of spirit, capable of true and steadfast wife hid. No sophistry about her; no knowledge even that there is sophistry. Heavens! Man, do you remember the bandeaux and triolets I used to write to those pretty creatures back East.

Roger Corben

A great read, well written.


Therese Fairbrother

Stories all seem to have been written some time ago. Quite old style language. However the stories are all quite engaging.


Yamini MacLean

Very well defined characters in slightly surreal situations - fantastic reading!
