This volume contains Hugh Walpole's 1915 collection of short stories, entitled "The Golden Scarecrow". It includes nine stories united by a common location but varying in theme and tone - some are gentle, some are ghastly, but all are masterfully composed and worthy of a place in any collection. The stories contained herein include: "Henry Fitzgeorge Strether", "Ernest Henry", "Angelina", "Bim Rochester", "Nancy Ross", "Enery", "Barbara Flint", "Sarah Trefusis", "Young John Scarlet", and more. Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (1884 - 1941) was a New Zealand-born English author. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
