"Rose looked far to the south-east - a gigantic
smoke-cloud soared above the low horizon
line, in shape like an eagle, whose hovering
wings extended from south to east, trailing
mysterious shadows upon the earth. The sun
lighted its mighty crest with crimson light, and
its gloom and glow became at each moment more
sharply contrasted. Towards this portentous
presence the train rushed, uttering an occasional
shrill neigh, like a stallion's defiance."

Hamlin Garland, Rose of Dutcher's Coolly, 1895
