Literary success soon faded; his complexity increasingly alienated readers. After a visit to the Holy Land in January 1857, he turned from writing prose fiction to poetry.

An excellent children's adaptation of Herman Melville's classic novel superbly retold in simple prose by an excellent writer from West Virginia, the late great Felix Sutton.

There are plenty of used copies in good condition out there for a reasonable price so don't be hoodwinked into by the copy being sold here for the ridiculous price of $200+. This is a good book, out of print for many years, but it is NOT rare enough to go for that kind of price.
