Look inside the book:
Well, that was too much for the other lads, drunk as most of them were, and they went up to the count and told him that if he wasn't out of the country before sunrise they'd hang him up by the neck like any common murderer. ...'On the very night before he was to sail, when he was on his way to the ship from saying good-by to my mother and the old people, a man sprang out from behind a pile of lumber on one of the wharves, and struck at him; but my father jumped back in time and struck in return with a loaded stick which he carried.
About Theodore Goodridge Roberts, the Author:
Roberts's 'poetry and fiction, staggering in sheer quantity and variety, show at their best Roberts's most enduring gifts: in his poetry a love of nature well served by a keen eye for local color and detail, a good ear for clean, clear rhythm and rhyme, and a forceful, uncluttered narrative line; and in fiction a talent for presenting his abiding perception of universal struggles between good and evil either in mythic tales of adventure or in regional stories animated by local settings, customs, and dialects.' ...^ a b c d e f g h 'Life of Theodore Goodridge Roberts,' That Far River: Selected Poems of Theodore Goodridge Roberts, (London, ON: Canadian Poetry Press, 1995), UWO, Web, May 13, 2011.
