    Excerpt from Rides and Studies in the Canary Islands This book is written for the entertainment both of those who visit the Canary Islands and those who do not. The fortunate few who propose to sojourn under the palms and sunshine of Tenerife may be glad to learn from it something about the early Canarians, whose bones alone remain to us. The Guanches, for example, were a race deserving of a fair niche in the mausoleum of defunct human types. These fortunate few may also welcome the book, because it assumes to give a description (inadequate enough) of what they hope to see. On the other hand, the "Rides and Studies" appeals no less to those discreeter travellers who do their journeying by the fireside. There is worse pastime than climbing a mountain with ones feet on the fender. And though it is a pleasure to ride, agape with expectation, among strangers in a strange land, it is even pleasanter to sit at ease in ones armchair, under our dull homely skies, and amid familiar faces. This the sage majority who travel only among the octavos know by heaven-born instinct. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
