1899. Part One of Twenty-three. Thonias Hewlings Stockton,
clergyman, wrote fantastic tales for children under the pen name
Frank R. Stockton. He also wrote books for adults. Among his
amusing books for children Rudder Grange is the best known. The
Lady and the Tiger, Adventures of Captain Horne, Mrs. Null, The
Casting Away of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshine, The Hundredth Man,
Great Stone of Sardis, and Captain's Tollgate were also quite
popular. The book begins: There was a wide entrance-gate to the old
family mansion of Midbranch, but it was never opened to admit the
family or visitors; although occasionally a load of wood, drawn by
two horses and two mules, came between its tall chestnut posts, and
was taken by a roundabout way among the trees to a spot at the back
of the house, where the chips of several generations of sturdy
wood-chopper had formed a ligneous soil deeper than the arable
surface of any portion of the nine hundred and fifty acres which
formed the farm of Midbranch. See other titles by this author
