Publisher's Summary

Enjoy 2 American masterpieces from the pen of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Peter Taylor. In "The Old Forest," a young girl who was with Nat in a car accident is now missing - and it falls upon Nat's fiancie to find her. The reasons involve love, tradition, and a woman's power. "The Hand of Emmagene," a tale with a slightly different tone, involves Emmagene, a girl who moves from the country to stay with her city relatives. Extremely religious, she soon finds herself racked with conflicts when she begins dating boys from home.
