"And a little child shall lead them". Bacheller's story is laid in the forests of the Adirondacks. "Uncle Sile" is a philosopher or the wooks who thinks much and says little - a "one-word man," but a genuine humorist, with fountains of sly laughter in him. The heroine is a delightful daughter of the woodlands, and her romance breathes of the mountain air.
