Tales from the White Mountains is a collection of four of Nathaniel Hawthorne's evocative short stories, all set in the eponymous mountains of New Hampshire which captured his imagination. "The Great Stone Face" is the story of a gentle man who longs for the fulfillment of a prophecy; "The Ambitious Guest" relates the last night of a loving family in a cabin high above a valley; "The Great Carbuncle" is a morality tale inspired by a Native American legend of a gem hidden in the mountains; and "Sketches from Memory" relates Hawthorne's recollections of his own travels which provided material for the other tales in this volume. Haunting and atmospheric, these stories demonstrate what has made Hawthorne one of America's most distinctive and well-loved writers.
