Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: “When a friend, a few weeks ago, told me that Henryk Sienkiewicz, the distinguished Polish novelist and author of "Fire and Sword" and "Quo Vadis," is a brother-inlaw of Madame Modjeska, I foolishly believed him. In the interval I have learned how grievously I was misinformed. A friend of Modjeska's writes me: "He [Sienkiewicz] is not a relative of Madame Modjeska's, but was at one time a friend, and wrote some of his novels while stopping on her ranch [in California]. He was the pioneer of that colony of Poles who went to California— hence his ' Lillian Morris.'" "Lillian Morris," I may explain, is the title of a charming story of Californian life. As originally published, it formed part of the author's record of his American travels, and has been translated by Mr. Jeremiah Curtin.”
—The Illustrated American, Volume 21

“Full of power and genius.”
—Christian Register

“A Quartette of Short Stories that is Rarely Equaled.”
