LITTLE JOURNEYS does not claim to be a "Guide" to the places described, nor a biography of the characters mentioned. The volume, at best, presents merely outline sketches: the background being washed in with impressions of the scenes and surroundings made sacred by the lives of certain "Good Men and Great."
Stray bits of information, "the feathers of lost birds," are here set down; various personal incidents are lightly detailed and some facts stated which have been told before.
If these random records of beautiful days spent in little journeys may brighten the pleasant recollections of a few of those who have already visited the places described, or add to the desire for further knowledge on the part of those who have not, the publication will have fully accomplished its mission.
