1914. Another story of the West from Wright, who, prior to his artistic and writing career, served as a minister. The book begins: It was winter-cold and snow and ice and naked trees and leaden clouds and stinging wind. The house was an ancient mansion on an old street in that city of culture which has given to the history of our nation-to education, to religion, to the sciences, and to the arts-so many illustrious names.
