Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Sheepfold: The Story of a Shepherdess and Her Sheep and How She Lost Them

Human life is but a road, and when its story comes to be written, may be shown in two ways: either as encountered by the pedestrian one piece at a time, without foresight of what lies beyond, or from a more elevated and bird's-eye point of view, embracing the two extremes, and telling even at the beginning something of what waits at the end.

In some lives death plays so small and unimportant a part that no dramatic purpose is served by holding its record till after; and as to Jane Sterling's end, readers who shall care at all about her life need not be kept in doubt. Her history is a past history, and she no longer breathes the air of this visible world wherein once she took delight.

It is enough here to say that she died as she lived, happy, conscious of no enmity either in fate or in her fellow-men, and not finding in solitude that proof of failure which, for one who had been a leader of men, some might suppose it to be. In her passage through life, which contained for her so many pedestrian miles, Jane found special contentment in certain things, simple yet of mysterious attraction: winding roads with broad margins of green, fields of corn, thatched house-roofs with the chitter of nestlings under their eaves, and the clink of the blacksmith's hammer at the forge. To such things she had been born, and they remained with her at her death.

These loves had their main association in two separate localities, one in the east of England, the other in the west, belonging respectively to her childhood and her approach into age; for though nomadic during the more active and proselytizing period of her life, at its two ends she was sedentary - settled, that is to say, in fixed and narrow surroundings.
