Excerpt from Idyls of the Golden Shore "There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; There is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar." - Byron. The thirty-six pieces of verse to be found in this book were written as fragments, no one depending upon or related to another. They were written, for the most part, at night by my campfire, while on the western plains and deserts, or during stormy days in the Sierra Nevada Mountains when I could not leave shelter; frequently, also, in the noise and confusion of a camp full of frontiersmen or Indians with nothing to do but sing and talk. Several of the pieces, in part or in full, have appeared in the newspapers, mostly in the West Virginia School Journal, Wheeling Intelligencer, Preston Journal, Toledo Blade, and the Louisville Courier-Journal. But I have changed all of them since then, I hope for the better. They all relate to California, or the "Golden Shore," that strange and beautiful country, different from all other lands of earth. I have endeavored to write as the subjects impressed themselves upon me. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
