LITTLE RIVERS

A BOOK OF ESSAYS IN PROFITABLE IDLENESS

by HENRY VAN DYKE

"And suppose he takes nothing, yet he enjoyeth a delightful walk by
pleasant Rivers, in sweet Pastures, amongst odoriferous Flowers,
which gratifie his Senses, and delight his Mind; which Contentments
induce many (who affect not Angling) to choose those places of
pleasure for their summer Recreation and Health."

COL. ROBERT VENABLES, The Experienc'd Angler, 1662.



DEDICATION


To one who wanders by my side
As cheerfully as waters glide;
Whose eyes are brown as woodland streams,
And very fair and full of dreams;
Whose heart is like a mountain spring,
Whose thoughts like merry rivers sing:
To her--my little daughter Brooke--
I dedicate this little book.
