dc.description.abstractA short story telling of seven travelers to Niagara Falls and sites and sounds they encounter on their journey. The end of the story describes Niagara as "Stupendous as is the actual, the idea involved is even greater. In a mere physical point of view nothing is more magnificent. The water which foams and sparkles at your feet, which mounts to the sky in sheets of foam, or disports itself in rainbows, is a visitant from the far-off Andes. It has floated over that vast inland sea, Superior; past the pictured rocks, where the spirit of the storm, sleeping in the vast caverns beneath, is heard to breathe and gurgle, till the voyager is filled with terror lest he awake and find them shelterless. It has circled the Michigan, heaved the Indian canoe upon the mighty Huron, floated along the Erie, and now it comes thundering down the rapids of Niagara, never to rest till the St. Lawrence conducts it oceanward, there to resume its eternal cycles, and again to pour itself over Niagara."en_US
