Barbara Ladd

by Charles G.D. Roberts

The romance opens with the flight of Barbara (then a eirl of fourteen) by night through the woods to a little lake and down the river in her birch-bark canoe with her little kittens, to escape from the Puritan rigidities of a New England aunt, and' throw herself upon the protection of a wild young southern uncle, who has always been her chum, and who understands her gypsy caprices. There is said to be fighting galore, and dancing in Boston and flirting everywhere, with a really novel form of duel, and a daring feat in swimming accomplished by the sweet gypsy, Mistress Barbara Ladd.
