This is a collection of ten absorbing stories, rich in setting,
tense in action, and warm in their sympathy with the human comedy.
The main interest in all the stories is the comedy or tragedy in
the lives of the people, but each story has its own enveloping
action of excitement and color. Pervading the whole is an authentic
folk life--Christian and pagan marvelously mixed.
Originally published in 1945.
