|Formatted Contents Note:||
Brown sails, blue water and highlanders -- Happy, heedless victims -- Rubs and knocks and competition -- The huge world that roars hard by -- Journeymen in this great whirling London mill -- The memory of the glades and wood -- I liked to get my meals regular and then to prop my back against a bit of rock and snooze a bit, and wake up and think of things going on -- Woman as but a drab thing -- I hardly feel I tread the earth. I only know that thou art mine -- I wish, oh how I wish, I had married an Indian half-breed -- There was a story in which a mole, a beever, a badjerand a water rat was characters -- Its much more sensible to pretend the world is fairy-land than an uninteresting dust heap -- The somewhat inadequate things that really come off -- Noble ideals, steadfast purposes -- The fellow that walks alone.
"A moving biography of Kenneth Grahame, author of the children's classic The Wind in the Willows, and of the vision of English pastoral life that inspired it"-- Provided by publisher.
