Excerpt from The Secret Woman Dartmoor is an embodiment of reality and a theatre of elemental force. Her bitter cold, and shadeless heat, her dwarfed but vigorous vegetation, her solemn hills and plains of light and darkness outspread, while they repulse the urban spirit, yet sometimes waken a beholder to emotions of interest; sometimes fire the feeble soul to courage; lift the luxurious toward restraint; touch the narrow, self - centred and mean to a wider survey of existence. At the foothills of the Moor lie forests. They sur round her, creep here and there up the green coombs into her heart, and nestle beneath her throne. A thousand homesteads stand round about her and look upward to the waste for many things that make life easier. Consciously the men and women re air thit for their passing needs; unconsciously it happens to some among them that the conditions of their exist ence here put metal into character and forge moral chains or armour, as the case may be. Such additions, handed down from generation to generation, help the high causes of patience, temperance and courage upon one hand, or petrify the heart and make for selfishness and reed upon the other.
