More About Gary D. Schmidt & Bill Farnsworth
Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, 1804, in Salem, Massachusetts, the son and grandson of proud New England seafarers. He lived in genteel poverty with his widowed mother and two young sisters in a house filled with Puritan ideals and family pride in a prosperous past. His boyhood was, in most respects, pleasant and normal. In 1825 he was graduated from Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, and he returned to Salem determined to become a writer of short stories. For the next twelve years he was plagued with unhappiness and self-doubts as he struggled to master his craft. He finally secured some small measure of success with the publication of his Twice-Told Tales (1837). His marriage to Sophia Peabody in 1842 was a happy one. The Scarlet Letter (1850), which brought him immediate recognition, was followed by The House of the Seven Gables (1851). After serving four years as the American Consul in Liverpool, England, he traveled in Italy; he returned home to Massachusetts in 1860. Depressed, weary of writing, and failing in health, he died on May 19, 1864, at Plymouth, New Hampshire.
Ross C. Murfin, professor of English at and former provost of Southern Methodist University, has also taught at the University of Virginia, Yale University, and the University of Miami, where he was Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He is the author of such books as Swinburne, Hardy, Lawrence and the Burden of Belief and The Poetry of D. H. Lawrence: Texts and Contexts. He is coauthor, with Supryia Ray, of The Bedford Glossary of Critical and Literary Terms (second edition) and series editor of Bedford/St. Martin's popular Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Great Stone Face?
an imagination of one's mind Nov 24, 1998
I am much interested in teaching lessons for kids. There are too many books to teach knowledge, but hard to find any to teach wisdom. We, adults, sholud teach our children the abstract conceptions, such as happy, perseverence, love, imagination, wisdom, mercy etc, through books. I think this book is really good because I can teach easily my children that you can be what you think in your mind, what you will think in your mind, good or bad. Introduce this book to your kids,and discuss the strength of imagination. Thank you.
The book could have been better. Oct 21, 1998
This book was unable to hold my interest. I thought the book was boring. This book had a good plot. The reason I was not to fond of the "The Great Stone Face" was because there wasn't much action. If you like action don't read this book, but if you like stories set in the Early American times or legends this book would be great for you. This book would be good for kids in sixth through tenth grade. I think the author did a good job on the "The Great Stone Face" and I would probably read another one of his books.
