A Bicycle of Cathay

by Frank R. Stockton

A country school teacher goes on a bicycle tour, meets three attractive young women one after the other, and returns after all to the pretty doctor's daughter who had thoughtfully given him a the quinine pills for his journey. Few writers would have the hardihood to construct a novel on so slight a frame, but Mr. Stockton fills up the narrative with an easy flow of incident and a variety of absurd situations.
