Bunch-Grass Stories

Excerpt from Bunch-Grass Stories It was the author's privilege to spend several years in the far West. While too late for contact with the dramatic days of the Argonauts, she was yet early enough to encounter in the by-ways the frontier quality which made the unique charm of the Slope. Successive waves of immigration had brought in elements the most diverse, and the old order was all but submerged. The resultant life was full of zest. Its situations had an intensity and its action a directness which gave them a peculiar interest. In the splendid empire of the coming West little will remain to keep the memory of its beginnings. These stories, woven out of incidents of its later settlement, seek to embody the spirit of the transition time. Into the collection have been put "Inspiration at the Cross-roads" and "The Black Shell," tales of other days and other wheres. The rest of the volume is so uncompromisingly modern that the writer has felt warranted in inserting two stories for those who, like herself, still love the old.
