The Knight of the Silver Star (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Knight of the Silver Star I Shifted my knapsack from my shoulders, and leaning upon my stafi, stood contemplating one of the most glorious panoramas my eyes had ever rested upon. Behind me, to the north, stretching away east ward and westward, the great mountain range lifted its frowning tops to heaven, and m the last glow Of sunset they were bathed in every tone of color the mind Of man can concieve, changing every moment from yellow to gold, from gold to burnished copper, from copper to a blood-red, which gradually turned to purple, growing deeper and deeper as darkness crept up the mountain sides. To the south and south-west, from whence 'i had come, the world fell down towards verdure and cultivation, and lands watered by streams, which grew slowly, and joined together into a river far away towards the horizon.
