This is the story of a good man. His name is Silas Marner. He lives alone in a little house in the town of Raveloe. Silas has lived here for 15 years. He makes his living weaving thread into cloth. He has no riends, children, or family. But, he has much money. People know very little about Silas, so they stay away from him. He knows things other people do not know. That is why people think he is strange. They think he may hurt them or play tricks on them. People want Silas to be just like them. Silas works all day and plays with his money at night. The money is in gold. Silas works hard for it, but he does not buy much. He does not want much. He just works, eats, and sleeps. And he eats very little.
