Nathaniel Hawthorne's story of a single man's spiritual journey provides a thought provoking description of what it means to live a good life. Hawthorne's language has been updated for the modern reader. The caricatures in this timeless tale hold-true to form more than 150 years after the initial publication. Howthorne tells the story of Ernest a modes, hardworking citizen living near the Great Stone Face. Ernest's mother relates an old Indian fable about a great man who will be born in the valley and grow to look like the Great Stone Face Ernest searches for this man - learning about human nature along the way. Hawthorne's short story (featuring the Old Man of the Mountain) is illustrated using vintage New Hameshire postcards. These varied and colorful impressions take us back to the natural beauty of an earlier time reminding us that is we who are the caretakers of out natural world.
