Excerpt from The Night-Rider's Daughter
Great giants of the forest line her shores on either side, poplars and oaks, cypress and beeches towering majestically above the reeds and the lily pads. Bending willows line the lake's edge, and there are the rushes, the saw grass with its knife-like teeth growing all up and down the strange bewildering stretch of desolate-looking waters. They grow in great banks, thick and impenetrable, six and eight feet tall. Beyond the rushes are the never ending fields of the lily pads, or jonquapins, ﬂourishing as the green bay tree in summer.
