Excerpt
I HAVE all the more pleasure in calling my book after the title of the first chapter, ?Pepacton,? because this is the Indian name of my native stream. In its watershed I was born and passed my youth, and here on its banks my kindred sleep. Here, also, I have gathered much of the harvest, poor though it be, that I have put in this and in previous volumes of my writings. The term ?Pepacton? is said to mean ?marriage of the waters;? and with this significance it suits my purpose well, as this book is also a union of many currents.
