Summary

Murray (1840-1904) was a sometime clergyman, journalist, and purveyor of the outdoor life. His books did much to popularize the virtues of outdoor experience, especially in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. Here are stories, some humorous some serious, of the out-of-doors, of love between man and woman, man and horse, man and dog, teacher and acolyte, of wisdom and foolishness. This recording is a selection of his short stories from "The Busted Ex-Texan And Other Stories" (1889), "How Deacon Tubman And Parson Whitney Kept New Years And Other Stories" (1888) and "A Ride With A Mad Horse In A Freight-Car" (1898). Contents: The Busted Ex-Texan; The Leaf Of Red Rose; How Deacon Tubman And Parson Whitney Kept New Years; The Old Beggar's Dog; The Ball; Who Was He?; A Ride With A Mad Horse In A Freight-Car.
