  • Poor Mr. Edwards, he really is such a decent man that it's a pity he and his newly-adopted son can't find some middle ground.

    Both Grace and Isaiah Edwards are thrilled that the three young Sanderson children have joined their family. For Mr. Edwards, in particular, having a son is wonderful and he can't wait to teach John all about hunting and fishing and other things he loves. The trouble is, young John is more interested in books and poetry and the outdoor life of his new father doesn't appeal to him. Things are very difficult for both of them, but are made far worse when Mr. Edwards insists that the boy accompany him on a hunting trip which turns out to be a very bad idea indeed.
