1900. Wister, an American writer whose stories helped to establish the cowboy as an archetypical, individualist hero. The book begins: At Santa Ysabel del Mar the season was at one of those moments when the air rests quiet over land and sea. The old breezes were gone; the new ones were not yet risen. The flowers in the mission garden opened wide; no wind came by day or night to shake the loose petals from their stems. Along the basking, silent, many-colored shore gathered and lingered the crisp odors of the mountains. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
