Wayside Courtships

by Hamlin Garland

One of the most characteristic phases of life in the West is the movement of its people, particularly of its young men. The latter are always on the road to college, to the city, to places farther west. On the way a woman's face often causes the young man to pause, turn, and perhaps remain. This motive underlies the book. On her part the woman finds a peculiar fascination in the passing of the stranger and the effect upon her life. A deeper interest still is suggested in the proem and elsewhere in the book.

Michael Maxwell
When Micheal Maxwell isn't travelling the world with his wife, you are most likely to find him somewhere between Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
