PERCY ST. JOHN'S INDIAN TALES .

This day is published, elegantly bound in cloth, price 3s. 6d.

THE ENCHANTED ROCK,

BY PERCY B. ST. JOHN.

“ Graphic Tale."-Alhenæum.

“ There is a good deal of incident in the tale, and whilst the writing is fully equal to that of the first volume, the matter we think is superior. The Indian characteristies seem better developed."- Spectator.

“This legend is written in a style so simple and yet so fresh, truthful and picturesque, that it carries the reader along with an irresistible charm.”- Dispatch.

As a picture of wild semi-savage life, it is full of interest."-Atlas.

“ The author is not giving us an imaginary and romantic sketch, but has himself witnessed the striking scenes he describes in so powerful a manner."-Sunday Times.

“ Mr. Percy St. John will be one of the first novelists of the day."- Western Advertiser.

“But it is not alone in bringing out his characters that Mr. St. John excels; his graphic descriptions of scenery give evidence of a master hand; they are animate with poetry and instinct with life. He is conscious of his power. We gladly follow so instructive and agreeable a guide. None will lay down the volume, and not wish for another work from the highly gifted author."-Sentinel.

Mr. St. John has opened a new source, and a rich one, of romance. His powers of description are so graphic that the reader is enabled to form a perfect idea of the locale. The only fault is it is too short.” - Era.

“ Equal to anything that ever emanated from Cooper. Fresh, picturesque, and touched off with a masterly hand. The character of Mainwaring, would

have done no discredit to the immortal author of Waverley. la orce and vigour not excelled by any writer of the present day.”- Yorkshireman.

Now ready, by the same author, price 3s. 6d., the Second Edition of

THE TRAPPER'S BRIDE.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS :

Atlas.

“ He writes like one who knows his personages and his scenery; works up an escape or a moment of suspense with a forcible hand; and manages his dialogue well."-Athenæum.

“Mr. St. John is uncommonly interesting and original. The story never flags or hitches. All is fresh, full of life, and motion, and the scenes described are such as can assuredly occur only in such wild lands." Blaetter fuer literarische Unterhaltung.

“Cooper's novels have not half the spirit of these two short and simple stories."- Era. “He has caught the spirit of the wilds, and almost rivals Cooper," --Critic. " In style so vivid as to approach the finest delineations of the author of "The last of the Mohicans.”"Now that Cooper has almost ceased to write, Mr. St. John will have no competitor."-Sunday Times. “ Not excelled even by Cooper."--Literary Times. "The most vivid and graphic sketches in the style of Cooper ever been given to the public.” –Weekly Paper. ** Since the novels of Cooper, we have seen nothing to compare to these Indian tales.”—Jersey Times. "The heroine is one of the finest and boldly drawn characters in the range of fiction." - Yorkshireman. “Not excelled even by Cooper in his happiest efforts.”- Norwich Mercury. • The author of this work is now well known as a very successful

periodical writer, and we believe bis talents are beginning to be appreciated at their real worth. He has all the elements of popularity ; his style is easy, fluent, and engaging ; and evidently possesses a fervid and generous enthusiasm. Few young authors of the present day have so little to learn as Mr. Percy St. John."- Oxford and Cambridge Review.
