This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This volume contains four novels and a travelogue by Emily Post, the author of the famous "Etiquette book." The four novels included are: "The Flight of a Moth," "Woven in the Tapestry,", "The Title Market," and "The Eagle's Feather." The travelogue is entitled “By Motor to the Golden Gate.”
While these works were written in the early twentieth century, they are still of interest today and are very much worth reading.
"The Flight of a Moth" describes the descent of a woman in love with the right man and lives happily ever after. It has an interesting perspective on both contemporary mores and those of the early twentieth century.
“Woven in the Tapestry” is an unusual fantasy, and in the opinion of the AfterMath staff, is far more interesting than most of the material printed in Galaxy and Analog during the golden age of science fiction and fantasy.
“The Title Market” spoofs Emily Post’s own famous work on etiquette.
“The Eagle’s Feather” describes the descent of a woman in love with the wrong man and does not live happily ever after, not at all. It, also, has an interesting perspective on both contemporary mores and those of the early twentieth century.
“By Motor to the Golden Gate” is a travelogue that provides an interesting view of travel in America before the time of good roads, certainly far before the experience of the United States military in World War II showed the need for an improved transportation infrastructure. This gave the impetus for the Interstate Highway System and all the resulting development.
