A Fortune Hunter; Or the Old Stone Corral: A Tale of the Santa Fe Trail (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Fortune Hunter; Or the Old Stone Corral: A Tale of the Santa Fe TrailTo the westward, on a lofty knoll, are visible the broken arches and ruined walls of the Old Stone Corral; rank vines now veil the Ioop-holes where once had flashed forth the leaden death-messenger for many a savage warrior that had tried to storm the impregnable inclosure, which had been built as a place of refuge for travelers on the Santa Fe Trail, that here crossed the Cottonwood ich had been built as a place of refuge for travelers on the Santa Fe Trail, that here crossed the Cottonwood on a stony ford. A giant elm, centuries old, stood amid the ruins, its drooping boughs of feathery spray weeping like a fountain of verdure over the spring that welled out from among its roots, then went gurgling away, a purling brook, to join the narrow stream in the valley.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
