Thoughtful people find this a place of wonderful interest, of unparalleled attraction- yet some of their most vivid impressions and remembrances of the spot are eminently unsatisfactory and disagreeable. The scenery here has an absolutely exhaustless vitality. Its beauty grows upon every observer who remains long enough to recognize the truth that the spectacle upon which he gazes is never twice the same. The longer one studies the view at some points the more unwilling he is to turn away. It is like leaving a play of entrancing interest which has not yet ended. And here the play never ends. This is the great characteristic of Niagara, - its infinite variety.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
