The Black Ghost of the Highway

Category: Author:novel 

The roads at the crossing were wide and smooth, with cool woods on either side, but beyond them to the left rose the high, jagged, yellow-and-black mass of the mountains, bare on their upper reaches, and wooded in the shelter of the valleys, a splintered peak or two farthest inland showing snowcapped even in August.

Until the fifteenth century, both the English and Scottish ...
