Excerpt from Das Habichtsfräulein, Eine Dorfgeschichte Aus Dem Thüringer Wald
Apart from their charm of characterization, these tales excel in being valuable contributions to folklore. Although essentially a modern man, Baumbach's liberal ism does not keep him from lingering ... tenderly and lov ingly over the precious traditions of the past; he finds the mission of his life in carrying over into modern times whatever quaint customs, antiquated sayings, odd superstitions, and curious evidences of paganism still linger amid the people of the more secluded valleys of his mountain home, and which were yet more strongly marked before the civilizing influence of the locomotive had time to rub the paint from the picturesque old cus toms and conditions of Thuringian country life.
