This was a matter of very...

    Red Men and White (English, Paperback) Owen Wister

    Something new was happening among the Crow Indians. A young pretender had appeared in the tribe. What this might lead to was unknown alike to white man and to red; but the old Crow chiefs discussed it in their councils, and the soldiers at Fort Custer, and the civilians at the agency twelve miles up the river, and all the white settlers in the valley discussed it also.

    How Doth the Simple Spelling Bee (English, Paperback) Owen Wister

    Of course, I know not how it may be with you; but with me the mail brings daily a multitude of communications that I have not sought, and do not want; nor do I refer to bills alone; and so, when there came one day a printed card saying:?Why Heifer?I tossed it into my waste-paper basket, and remembered it no more.

    Padre Ignacio; Or, the Song of Temptation (English, Paperback) Owen Wister

    At Santa Ysabel del Mar the season was at one of those moments when the air rests quiet over land and sea. The old breezes were gone; the new ones were not yet risen. The flowers in the mission garden opened wide; no wind came by day or night to shake the loose petals from their stems.

  • The Pentecost of Calamity
    The Pentecost of Calamity (English, Paperback) Owen Wister

    By various influences and agents the Past is summoned before us, more vivid than a dream.
