Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

As one of America’s most famous writers and novelists, Nathaniel Hawthorne needs no formal introduction. He worked at a Custom House and joined Brook Farm, a transcendentalist community, before marrying Peabody in 1842. The couple moved to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, later moving to Salem, the Berkshires, then to The Wayside in Concord. The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. A political appointment took Hawthorne and family to Europe before their return to The Wayside in 1860. Hawthorne died on May 19, 1864, leaving behind his wife and their three children.

Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. Several of them are considered examples of the finest American literature.

This edition of Hawthorne’s The Celestial Railroad is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Hawthorne, his residences, and the House of 7 Gables.

    Not recommended in this version

    This is a digitized version of an old edition of the story.

    The transcription is so poor that the text is barely readable. Perhaps the Gutenberg Project does a better job.

    CelestialClan's Destiny Chapter 10 ~Rose

    [Thanks for all the comments. Sorry about the suspense. I probably won't finish Heatherheart's Destiny, but if I change my mind, I'll tell you guys here. Also, I don't know who you are Rainbowkit, but I'll try to put you and the others in soon. Not this chapter, but soon.]<p>
    Grays and greens swirled around making fuzzy shapes. Leaves, or were those rocks. A tree, or maybe a den. The disgusting smell of illness hung in the air. A swish of water, or possibly ferns. Leaves crunching. The feel of something soft touching her paw. And if possible, the taste of sickness.<p>
    As Twilight awoke, those were the things her senses were telling her. Everything seemed blurry and unclear. She couldn't be certain of anything, except the pain from her stomach and the itching of her throat.<p>
    Suddenly, a steady voice reached her ear. "Are you feeling alright?" It took her a minute to realize that it was Dusksong. She was in the medicine den.<p>
    "I - I - I'm not feeling that great. M - my throat, it h - hurts. And m - my stomach, oh," Twilight mumbled the best she could. Dusksong nodded in understanding.<p>
    "You have greencough. I need you to take some herbs and rest," Dusksong explained. <p>
    Twilight sat up slowly. The world was starting to spin again. Things were starting to turn upside down. Sounds seemed muffled.<p>
    Dusksong gathered some borage and feverfew. Glancing back at Twilight, she pulled out a sunflower seed. Without catmint, Twilight couldn't be healed correctly. Dusksong realized that Twilight would not be able to chew or swallow the herbs because she was so weak, so she chewed them into a soft poultice. She padded over to Twilight, who was now sitting up, with the poultice.<p>
    "Here. You need to eat this to get better." Dusksong's words were quite confusing to Twilight. Suddenly, Dusksong pushed a green colored ball down her throat. She began to cough, and she could feel pressure on her throat. Finally, she swallowed the ball of herbs. Only a few seconds later, a hacking cough arose from her throat.<p>
    Dusksong closed her eyes. Suddenly she remembered that there was a little bit of honey wrapped in a leaf. She rummaged through the herb store, as Twilight continued coughing. Finally she found the honey. Ash, had retrieved it from a beehive not so long ago. Dusksong dripped some of the honey into Twilight's mouth. Twilight let out a small shriek, but swallowed the warm, golden liquid. "Good, now you need to rest," Dusksong meowed when Twilight had finished th honey.<p>
    Twilight's throat felt better after drinking the honey, but her stomach didn't. As she lay down again, she could feel it churning. The honey felt strange in her belly. Suddenly, she tasted bile. She tryed to force it down, but that just made it worse. Finally Twilight vomited. She felt slightly dizzy and quite uneasy, but after throwing up her stomach wasn't churning.<p>
    Dusksong padded over. "Are you ok?" she asked worried. Twiligjt nodded, her eyes full of sleep. Dusksong quickly cleaned up the mess, and by the time she was done, Twilight was asleep. Dusksong tryed not to worry, but she couldn't help it. Twilight wasn't going to live without catmint.<p>
    [Sorry if that was a bit disturbing. It needed to happen.]<p>
