A shabby little traveling man, who was just then coming out of the store on his way to the saloon, stopped and gazed stupidly at the shining mass of hair she bared when she took off her veil; two thick braids, pinned about her head in the German way, with a fringe of reddish-yellow curls blowing out from under her cap.

...Alexandra had not the heart to take him away from so pretty a playfellow, and she let them tease the kitten together until Joe Tovesky came in noisily and picked up his little niece, setting her on his shoulder for every one to see.

...It was from facing this vast hardness that the boys mouth had become so bitter; because he felt that men were too weak to make any mark here, that the land wanted to be let alone, to preserve its own fierce strength, its peculiar, savage kind of beauty, its uninterrupted mournfulness.

...Of course, Alexandra went on, steadying her voice a little, the boys are strong and work hard, but weve always depended so on father that I dont see how we can go ahead.

...We want to buy a hammock, if you have one, Alexandra explained, and my little brother, here, wants to see your big pond, where so many birds come.
