The People of the Mist

( 10 )

Overview

The January afternoon was passing into night, the air was cold and still, so still that not a single twig of the naked beech-trees stirred; on the grass of the meadows lay a thin white rime, half frost, half snow; the firs stood out blackly against a steel-hued sky, and over the tallest of them hung a single star. Past these bordering firs there ran a road, on which, in this evening of the opening of our story, a young man stood irresolute, glancing now to the right and now to ...

Overview

The January afternoon was passing into night, the air was cold and still, so still that not a single twig of the naked beech-trees stirred; on the grass of the meadows lay a thin white rime, half frost, half snow; the firs stood out blackly against a steel-hued sky, and over the tallest of them hung a single star. Past these bordering firs there ran a road, on which, in this evening of the opening of our story, a young man stood irresolute, glancing now to the right and now to the left.
To his right were two stately gates of iron fantastically wrought, supported by stone pillars on whose summits stood griffins of black marble embracing coats of arms, and banners inscribed with the device Per ardua ad astra. Beyond these gates ran a broad carriage drive, lined on either side by a double row of such oaks as England alone can produce under the most favourable circumstances of soil, aided by the nurturing hand of man and three or four centuries of time.

Meet the Author

Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was educated at Ipswich School before careers as a colonial administrator in Africa and as a barrister in England. A prolific novelist, many of his stories, such as King Solomon's Mines and She, are set in Africa, and he is notable for portraying African characters sympathetically at a time when this was unusual. His 'lost world' novels influenced Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and Indiana Jones; he was knighted in 1912.

    WHAT A STORY!

    WHEN I FIRST READ THIS BOOK IT WAS MISSING ABOUT TWENTY PAGES,AND I LOOKED HARD FOR MONTHS TIL I FOUND IT AND IT TURNED ME ON TOO MOST OF HIS NOVELS. IN THIS BOOK YOU CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE THAT KING TO BE OTTER. I BELIEVE HAGGARD KNEW T.V AND MOVIES WHERE ON THE WAY, BECAUSE THIS WOULD BE A GREAT MOVIE OR MINI-SERIES.
