Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER HI. LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN WAR MEMORIES ATLANTA. It was after midnight when we left Enoxville. In turning southward, we passed over the very route by which Longstreet had come up the valley of the Tennessee, to make the assault which I have briefly described ; and as I was full of the history, it took such hold of my imagination that I seemed now and then to hear the tramp of armed men, and the rumbling of the artillery wagons as they moved forward to battle. But it was a relief to wake and find that such visions were only in my dreams, and that when I looked out through the curtains of my window, I could not see a single camp-fire, nor hear a sound but that of the wind whispering through the forest. When morning came, we were drawing into Chattanooga, and as a hungry traveller, I was looking round for a breakfast, when I was saluted by a familiar voice—that of Mr. S. A. Cunningham of the Nashville American, to; whom I had telegraphed that I was to take this route, and who had come all the way from Nashville to meet me. It was a pleasant surprise, and of course I gave up at once the idea of going on directly to Atlanta, and accepted his suggestion to spend the forenoon upon Lookout Mountain. This is not at all28 LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN. difficult, as a street-car takes you to its foot, from which a railway, rising at a sharp angle, lifts you to the top. This is not the most romantic way of climbing a mountain. When I went over the Alps in my young days, I preferred to go on foot, withalpenstock in hand, and a trusty guide to lead the way, though of late I confess that when I come to the Rhigi, which is a pretty long pull, I am willing to take steam as a substitute for legs.

Name-Streakfeather | Position-Deputy | Personality-Quiet, mysterious, emotionless | Appearance-Lean, with thin limbs hiding strength equal to that of Tigerstar's. Silver fur with black streaks along his back and sides; blue eyes. | Mate-None | Kits-None | Mother-Oceanblaze | Father-Seasalt | Siblings-Featherkit (blood), Rushingsnow (adopted) | Background-Featherkit died at a young age and Rushingsnow went missing just before her warrior ceremony. As far as Streakfeather can tell, Seasalt just left; they never met. Oceanblaze disappeared just recently. Streakfeather was just a young kit when a group of ShadowClan warriors left the Clan to form HurricaneClan because of a small kit with wings&ndash;now Mistystar, the leader of that Clan. His mentor wasn't on while he was an apprentice, so he trained himself. That's really all there is to it. &mdash;$ + ¿ &euro; @ |< ¿ &euro; @ + # &euro; ¿

Spiritfrost- a light grey tabby shecat with frosty blue eyes. She has white paws, a white chest, underbelly, and tail-tip, and a white blaze running up between her eyes coming from her whit muzzle. She was adopted by Autumnleaf, (Autumnstar, former leader of Shadowclan,) and hates tking about her past. She is very shy and nervous, due to an incedent in her st that she rarely talks about. ~Spiritfrost
