Overview

Enjoy this classic work. These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside:

In company with a friend, who was interested in a Ural mining concern, he had made a trip across Eastern Europe at a moment when the great Russian railway strike was developing from a threat to a reality; its outbreak caught him on the return journey, somewhere on the further side of Perm, and it was while waiting for a couple of days at a wayside station in a state of suspended locomotion that he made the acquaintance of a dealer in harness and metalware, who profitably whiled away the tedium of the long halt by initiating his English travelling companion in a fragmentary system of folk-lore that he had picked up from Trans-Baikal traders and natives.

...?Yes, wolves are nocturnal animals, so the late hours won?t hurt her,? said Clovis, with the air of one who has taken everything into consideration; ?one of your men could bring her over from Pabham Park after dusk, and with a little help he ought to be able to smuggle her into the conservatory at the same moment that Mary Hampton makes an unobtrusive exit.?

...?Personally I think an otter life would be rather enjoyable,? continued Laura; ?salmon to eat all the year round, and the satisfaction of being able to fetch the trout in their own homes without having to wait for hours till they condescend to rise to the fly you?ve been dangling before them; and an elegant svelte figure??

...?I?m staying with my aunt, and I was told I must behave particularly well to-day, as lots of people were coming for a garden party, and I was told to imitate Claude, that?s my young cousin, who never does anything wrong except by accident, and then is always apologetic about it.

...We can?t very well ask to have the horse back; you see, we praised it up like anything when we thought there was a chance of his buying it, and said it was just the animal to suit him.?
