The History and Practice of the Art of Photography, Or, The Produc...

By: Henry H. Snelling

Preface: The object of this little work is to fill a void much complained of by Daguerreotypists particularly young beginers. The author has waited a long time in hopes that some more able pen would be devoted to the subject, but the wants of the numerous, and constantly increasing, class, just mentioned, induces him to wait no longer. All the English works on the subject particularly on the practical application, of Photogenic drawing are deficient in many minute detail...

The Grizzly King

By: James Oliver Curwood

Preface: It is with something like a confession that I offer this second of my nature books to the public?a confession, and a hope; the confession of one who for years hunted and killed before he learned that the wild offered a more thrilling sport than slaughter?and the hope that what I have written may make others feel and understand that the greatest thrill of the hunt is not in killing, but in letting live. It is true that in the great open spaces one must kill to li...

Baree, Son of Kazan

By: James Oliver Curwood

Preface: Since the publication of my two animal books, ?Kazan, the Wolf Dog? and ?The Grizzly King,? I have received so many hundreds of letters from friends of wild animal life, all of which were more or less of an inquiring nature, that I have been encouraged to incorporate in this preface of the third of my series ?Baree, Son of Kazan? something more of my desire and hope in writing of wild life, and something of the foundation of fact whereupon this and its companion books have been written.

The Country Beyond

By: James Oliver Curwood

Excerpt: Chapter One. Not far from the rugged and storm?whipped north shore of Lake Superior, and south of the Kaministiqua, yet not as far south as the Rainy River waterway, there lay a paradise lost in the heart of a wilderness world and in that paradise ?a little corner of hell.? That was what the girl had called it once upon a time, when sobbing out the shame and the agony of it to herself. That was before Peter had come to leaven the drab of her life. But the hell w...

The Valley of Silent Men

By: James Oliver Curwood

Excerpt: Before the railroad?s thin lines of steel bit their way up through the wilderness, Athabasca Landing was the picturesque threshold over which one must step who would enter into the mystery and adventure of the great white North. It is still Iskwatam the ?door? which opens to the lower reaches of the Athabasca, the Slave, and the Mackenzie. It is somewhat difficult to find on the map, yet it is there, because its history is written in more than a hundred and fort...

Flower of the North

By: James Oliver Curwood

Excerpt: ?Such hair! Such eyes! Such color! Laugh if you will, Whittemore, but I swear that she was the handsomest girl I've ever laid my eyes upon!? There was an artist?s enthusiasm in Gregson?s girlishly sensitive face as he looked across the table at Whittemore and lighted a cigarette. ?She wouldn't so much as give me a look when I stared,? he added. ?I couldn't help it. Gad, I'm going to make a full?page ?cover? of her to?morrow for Burke?s. Burke dotes on pretty wom...

EDITOR'S PREFACE: Here are the best of many thrilling stories written by the late James Oliver Curwood concerning the ships that once plied America's fresh- water oceans—and the dauntless men who sailed them. These tales of the Inland Seas are reliable word-pictures of vessels and sailors now remembered only by the survivors of a generation that will soon have passed entirely away. Mr. Curwood, though better known as a writer of Canadian wilderness novels, was once regar...

How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day

By: Arnold Bennett

This preface, though placed at the beginning, as a preface must be, should be read at the end of the book. I have received a large amount of correspondence concerning this small work, and many reviews of it?some of them nearly as long as the book itself?have been printed. But scarcely any of the comment has been adverse. Some people have objected to a frivolity of tone; but as the tone is not, in my opinion, at all frivolous, this objection did not impress me; and had no...

Short Stories for English Courses

The short story is especially adapted to supplement our highschool reading. It is of a piece with our varied, hurried, efficient American life, wherein figure the business man?s lunch, the dictagraph, the telegraph, the telephone, the automobile, and the railway ?limited.? It has achieved high art, yet conforms to the modern demand that our literature?since it must be read with dispatch, if read at all?be compact and compelling. Moreover, the short story is with us in al...
