1916. This being the story of the world's greatest exploration, and the romance of a very gallant gentleman. Hough's literary career grew out of his taking camping trips and writing about them for publication. His body of work eventually included 27 novels and hundreds of short stories and articles. The Magnificent Adventure begins: A woman, tall, somewhat angular, dark of hair and eye, strong of features-a woman now approaching middle age-sat looking out over the long, tree-clad slopes that ran down from the gallery front of the mansion house to the gate at the distant roadway. She had sat thus for some moments, many moments, her gaze intently fixed, as though waiting for something- something or someone that she did not now see, but expected soon to see.
