Note Relating to Cather
Howard Pyle "is as careful and painstaking and artistic with his children's books as the very best novelists are with their novels. The Wonder Clock [1888] or Salt and Pepper for Young Folks [1886] cannot fail to make children happy. But best of them all is Pyle's Otto of the Silver Hand. It is a story of German chivalry in the days of the robber barons, and when a boy is through with it he has a very fair idea what that phrase 'the Middle Ages' meant."
