#35: “Story of an Obstinate Corpse ” by Elia Peattie

Synopsis: A photographer in the Old West meets his match in a very peculiar stuborn woman.

VIRGIL HOYT is a photographer’s assistant up at St. Paul, and enjoys his work without being consumed by it. He has been in search of the picturesque all over the West and hundreds of miles to the north, in Canada, and can speak three or four Indian dialects and put a canoe through the rapids. That is to say, he is a man of adventure, and no dreamer.”
