Excerpt from The Night Before Thanksgiving, a White Heron: And Selected Stories

New England has grown rich in short-story writers during the past thirty years. One of the best-beloved, Sarah Orne J swett, has recently finished her work, leaving the world poorer because her gracious personality and rich gifts have been withdrawn from it; but the precious legacy of her sto ries remains. These are too genuine, too human, too full of the spirit of New England to be relegated to the shelves of mature and cultivated book-lovers only. A wider circle of readers should be found than that which has hailed with delight each new story as it came fresh from her pen. She has written many things which growing girls and boys care for, especially when they read them with some older friend who appreciates the insight, the sympathy, the delicate taste, the delicious humor, the perfect restraint which characterize them all. Only a few of these have been gathered together in this little volume, but others have been suggested in the introductory notes in the hope that the teacher will read some of them to the pupils and will encourage them to get others from the public libraries to read outside of school.
