The Story

This story continues the experiences of the Little Pilgrim in the Afterlife. She has heard of the Land of Darkness, and longs to help those who are struggling on the dark mountains to reach God.

This story is the fifth and last story in the Little Pilgrim series. (See the link below for more information.)

Biographical and other notes

The beginning of the story, as originally published in Blackwood's Magazine, was modified.

When this story was collected with two others in the book entitled The Land of Darkness, the stories were not presented in their chronological order. See the "Little Pilgrim series" entry below for the correct order of the three stories. This issue also applies to the American collection, entitled The Little Pilgrim: Further Experiences.
