KATE DOUGLAS WIGGIN (NEE SMITH, MRS. GEORGE C. RIGGS)
American writer and educator
(1856 - 1923)
  CHECK READING LIST (2)  

The old stage coach was rumbling along the dusty road that runs from Maplewood to Riverboro. The day was as warm as midsummer, though it was only the middle of May, and Mr. Jeremiah Cobb was favoring the horses as much as possible, yet never losing sight of the fact that he carried the mail. The hills were many, and the reins lay loosely in his hands as he lolled back in his seat and extended one foot and leg luxuriously over the dashboard. His brimmed hat of worn felt was well pulled over his eyes, and revolved a quid of tobacco in his left cheek.
      - Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

It was not long after sunrise, and Stephen Waterman, fresh from his dip in the river, had scrambled up the hillside from the hut in the alder-bushes where he had made his morning toilet.
      - Rose o' the River [Books (First Lines)]
