9781333441005: The Wives of the Prophet: A Novel (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Wives of the Prophet: A Novel
Away up the Cumberland river, in Tennessee, there is a scope of country that romantic tourists, who doubtless never have been abroad, are wont to declare reminds them of Switzerland. It lies, or more correctly speaking, rolls and tumbles to the eastward from the river. The mountains are not high enough to be white at the top nor the valleys deep enough to be dismal at the bottom. In winter a hazel gauze is hung from hill-top to hill-top, and in summer a dazzling, greenish mist creeps up from the river. Very little is known of this section of country. Its principal visitors, backed by the government, care not for scenery, loiter not in a nook because it is romantic, but pry about in foreboding places, looking for whisky that bears not the stamp of legitimacy.
Houses are so scattered and so hidden away that one might fancy them to be suspicious of one another; there appear to be no paths running from one house to another.
