This collection of tales is an engaging compendium of Hawthorne's short stories, including many set in and around the writer's native New England. The title story is a charming fable-like tale that takes as its focus a long-famous geological feature in the New Hampshire mountains (the face-like granite protrusion collapsed in 2003).

The Great Stone Face based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The amount of foreshadowing in this tale is emaculate. It was a joy to read the book and then have the "ah ha" moment at the end when I realized that the whole time the story was unfolding foreshadowing had taken place. I especially liked when Earnest's mom told him that he would meet the man that looked like the great stone face.
