The Baskervilles are out, but beware of the hound

A writer takes his children to Dartmoor for a little visit and, soon after they arrive, a fog settles. They hear unearthly sounds by what could be ferocious beasts, and imagine a man disappearing into the fog and never emerging again. And then there's the escaped convict, whose legend grows as years pass.

This is a nifty bit of travel writing about the place where The Hound of the Baskervilles was set.
