Publisher's Summary

"Someone will be born hereabouts who will look just like the Great Stone Face, and he will be the noblest person of his time."

This is the age-old prophecy that lies at the heart of the titular short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne of his remarkable collection, centering on tales situated in the White Mountains region. The hero in the first tale turns out to be the actual Great Stone Face, but it will take the villagers and himself a lifetime to realize this! The collection includes three other fascinating short stories: "The Ambitious Guest", "The Great Carbuncle" and "Sketches from Memory".

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) was an American author, short story writer and dark romantic. He is most famous for his romance "The Scarlet Letter".

Jack Brown is a passionate reader of classic and genre oriented literature. He enjoys creating high quality audio books.
