The Homing Instinct (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Homing Instinct The earth with his hungry roots and expanding his clamorous leaves to the Vitalizing sunlight; every green cedar clinging to the frowning face of some tall cliff and wrestling there, at so great disadvantage, with the heartless winds - everything that de rives its sustenance from the soil seems bound to live while life is possible - and not merely while its environment is favorable or agree able! Perhaps this is the thought that rings and reechoes in the closing couplets of the one poem which marks the fame of our great novelist: Creeping where no life is seen, A rare old plant is the Ivy Green. Creeping where grim death has been, A rare old plant is the Ivy Green. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
