CAPT. MAYNE REID (THOMAS MAYNE REID)
American novelist and adventurer
(1818 - 1883)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

On the great plain of Texas, about a hundred miles southward from the old Spanish town of San Antonio de Bejar, the noonday sun is shedding his beams from a sky of cerulean brightness. Under the golden light appears a group of objects, but little in unison with the landscape around them: since they betoken the presence of human beings, in a spot where there is no sign of human habitation.
      - The Headless Horseman (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

The stag of Texas, reclining in midnight lair, is startled from his slumbers by the hoofstroke of a horse.
      - The Headless Horseman (prologue)
        [Books (First Lines)]
