I thought this was Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn. It is--sort of. The original is composed of three parts where the inn's occupants provide their tales in each of the three parts. However, thus e-book only contains the first part. Perhaps the publishers got hold of a defective copy and did not know they only had a partial example. After all, in this part IS Paul Revere's Ride and The Children's Hour. But that is not all that Longfellow wrote in his career. One who LOOKS for information about the Tales or consults Bartlett's Quotations will find references to other portions of this work. At the least, the information page should make a point that this is NOT the complete work so the purchaser is aware they are buying only a portion of the work. (To make it all more of a comedy of errors, when I discovered the lack of content, I searched out a different e-book on B&N's site and bought it. The second version alsowas just the first part and the publisher was Barnes and Noble. Gad!)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
