Excerpt from The Footpath Way; An Anthology for Those Who Travel by Countryside: Compiled<br><br>This little selection is intended for those who, in search of quiet, and having slipped the volume into the pocket, desire to refresh the mind while resting beside "the footpath way." The majority of pieces chosen have been selected from favourite authors - many of them lovable men - to make this offering of literary refreshment as dainty as possible. Most of the poems and passages chosen to fill these pages throb with the true joy of the open air, each in its turn suggesting some happy country thought or painting some pastoral scene.<br><br>A few of the longer poems and essays included in this selection have been given in their entirety, among which may be mentioned Bacon's essay "On Gardens" and Milton's "Ode on the Morning of Christ's Nativity."<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
