In such a case, there would be nothing for it but Even at night, when the flocks are in the fold, and the birds at roost, and the echoes themselves seem to be asleep, there is occasionally a sweet music heard, too soft for even the listening ear to catch by day. Still as everything is to the eye, sometimes for a hundred miles together along these deep sea-valleys, there is rarely silence. The ear is kept awake by a thousand voices. In the summer, there are cataracts leaping from ledge to ledge This music, of course, ceases when each tree becomes laden with snow ; but yet there is sound, in the midst of the longest winter night.

There is the rumble of some avalanche, as, after a drifting storm, a mass of snow, too heavy to keep its place, slides and tumbles from the mountain peak. There is also, now and then, a loud crack of the ice in the nearest At high water, nothing larger than a bird could go in and out beneath the low arch ; but there was a cavern within, whose sandy floor sloped up to some distance above high-water mark.

In this cavern was Rolf. He had thrust his little skiff between the walls of rock, crushing in its sides as he did so. The bushes drooped behind him, hanging naturally over the entrance, as before. Rolf pulled up his broken vessel upon the little sandy beach within the cave This dwelling, with its few fields about it, was in a recess between the rocks, on the shore of the fiord, about five miles from Saltdalen, and two miles from the junction of the Salten's Elv river with the fiord.

Return to Book Page. This is the original version, dating from the mid nineteenth century. Excerpt from Chapter I : he singular character of its coast. On the map it looks so jagged, such a strange mixture of land and sea, that it appears as if there must be a perpetual struggle between the two,-the sea striving to inundate the land, and the land pushing itself out into the sea, till it ends in their dividing the region between them.

On the spot, however, this coast is very sublime. The long straggling promontories are mountainous, towering ridges of rock, springing up in precipices from the water; while the bays between them, instead of being rounded with shelving sandy shores, on which the sea tumbles its waves, as in bays of our coast, are, in fact, long narrow valleys, filled with sea, instead of being laid out in fields and meadows.

The high rocky banks shelter these deep bays called fiords from almost every wind; so that their waters are usually as still as those of a lake. For days and weeks together, they reflect each separate tree-top of the pine-forests which clothe the mountain sides, the mirror being broken only by the leap of some sportive fish, or the oars of the boatman as he goes to inspect the sea-fowl from islet to islet of the fiord, or carries out his nets or his rod to catch the sea-trout or char, or cod, or herrings, which abound, in their seasons, on the coast of Norway.

These superstitious beliefs are presented as figments of her imagination, yet REAL fears she must deal with. Through her suffering both real and imagined and the adventures of her betrot Being included in the Playfellow, I expected Feats on the Fiord to be a sequel to the The Crofton Boys.

Through her suffering both real and imagined and the adventures of her betrothed, Rolf, it is a joy to watch her mature into wisdom. I enjoyed the characters very much, from old, blind Peder and his wife Ulla to the young rambunctious Oddo. I fell in love with the countryside of Norway, especially the "seater", where they drive their cattle each spring to feed upon the mountain wildflowers, in order to make a particular cheese from the milk.

This is a story that will appeal to boys for the bravery of the men in daring rescues, fighting pirates, being stranded on an island and caring for the farm. It will be equally appealing to girls, as the main character is a girl who must overcome her fears and hardships.

And for parents who prefer romance-free reading for their children, this fits the bill nicely. Although much of the plot is centered around the engagement of Erica and Rolf, it is discussed as an event in the course of life, not in an emotional way that would stir up romantic feelings in the reader.
