Description

This book was released in 1897. Howells was an American realist author. He wrote for various magazines including "Atlantic Monthly" and "Harper's Magazine". His career blossomed after the publication of his first realist novel, "A Modern Instance". The book begins: If you looked at the mountain from the west, the line of the summit was wandering and uncertain, like that of most mountaintops; but seen from the east, the mass of granite showing above the dense forests of the lower slopes had the form of a sleeping lion. The flanks and haunches were vaguely distinguished from the mass; but the mighty head, resting with its tossed mane upon the vast paws stretched before it, was boldly sculptured against the sky. The likeness could not have been more perfect, when you had it in profile, if it had been a definite intention of art; and you could travel far north and far south before the illusion vanished.
