Book Description

Excerpt:

I
The great Pullman was whirling onward with such dignity of motion that a glance from the window seemed simply to prove that the plains of Texas were pouring eastward. Vast flats of green grass, dull-hued spaces of mesquite and cactus, little groups of frame houses, woods of light and tender trees, all were sweeping into the east, sweeping over the horizon, a precipice.
A newly married pair had boarded this coach at San Antonio. The man's face was reddened from many days in the wind and sun, and a direct result of his new black clothes was that his brick-colored hands were constantly performing in a most conscious fashion. From time to time he looked down respectfully at his attire. He sat with a hand on each knee, like a man waiting in a barber's shop. The glances he devoted to other passengers were furtive and shy.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Short story by Stephen Crane, published in The Open Boat and Other Stories in London and a smaller collection, The Open Boat and Other Tales of Adventure, in New York in 1898. Set at the end of the 19th century in a town called Yellow Sky, the story concerns the marshal, Jack Potter, and his unnamed bride and the effect their marriage has on the town. The drunken, belligerent Scratchy Wilson, a cowboy who represents the Old West, tries to effect a showdown with Jack, his nemesis. When Jack refuses to fight, responding to the cowpoke's taunts with "I'm married," Scratchy leaves without fighting, bewildered that the old rules have changed. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
