The Wild Man of the West A Tale of the Rocky Mountains

First Page:

The Wild Man of the West, by R.M. Ballantyne.

The action of this book takes place entirely in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in North America.

Afar in the Forest

First Page:

Afar in the Forest, by W.H.G. Kingston.

This is not a long book, but is very much in the Kingston style, that is, the style he employs when writing about land based adventures, as opposed to sea based ones.

It is quite difficult to follow who is who in this story, and why they are doing what they do. I suggest that you use a pen and paper to jot down people's names as and when they make their appearance.

But there are some surprises regarding who is related to whom, a device which Kingst...

1. Kapitel

Der Moni fühlt sich wohl

Um zu dem Badehaus Fideris zu gelangen, muss man steil und lang die H"ohe hinaufsteigen, nachdem man die Strasse verlassen hat, die sich durch das lange Tal des Pr"attigau nach oben schl"angelt. So mühsam keuchen dann die Pferde den Berg hinauf, dass man lieber aussteigt und zu Fuss die grüne H"ohe erreicht.

Nach einem l"angeren Anstieg kommt man erst zum Dorf Fideris, das auf der freundlichen, grünen Anh"ohe liegt. Von da geht es weiter in die Berge hinein, bis das eins...
