Harte, B. (n.d.). Drift from Two Shores. Retrieved from

Excerpt: He lived beside a river that emptied into a great ocean. The narrow strip of land that lay between him and the estuary was covered at high tide by a shining film of water, at low tide with the cast?up offerings of sea and shore. Logs yet green, and saplings washed away from inland banks, battered fragments of wrecks and orange crates of bamboo, broken into tiny rafts yet odorous with their lost freight, lay in long successive curves, the fringes and overlappings of the sea. At high noon the shadow of a seagull?s wing, or a sudden flurry and gray squall of sand? pipers, themselves but shadows, was all that broke the monotonous glare of the level sands.
