Description of Item
An exuberant action comedy, featuring fearless Capitola Black, a self-styled female Don Quixote, and the prototype of innumerable adventure heroines.
Rescued from life on the streets in New York by a southern plantation owner, with his own reasons for befriending her, Capitola is too active and adventurous to settle for the life of a southern belle. Besides, the neighbourhood is infested with evil-doers--Black Donald, the notorious bandit, and Gabriel Le Noir, the owner of the plantation adjoining--combine to make her life full of excitement and peril. A book which will surprise and delight any reader, as the hidden hand of an all-wise God becomes remarkably apparent.

The rugged hills of western Virginia hid many secrets in the days of the Old South. Gruff, elderly gentlemen like Old Hurricane ruled their plantations like kings, and thieves preyed on unwary travelers. Secrets abound in this masterpiece by E.D.E.N. Southworth.

Young Capitola begins life under a dark and mysterious cloud, but her fiery enthusiasm for life and adventure turns Old Hurricane and his entire plantation upside-down. Scalawags and saints beware; Capitola will capture your heart and run away with it.
