This black and white illustration, appearing as the frontispiece to the 1853 G. P. Putnam & Company Illustrated Edition reprint, depicts Ellen walking in the woods. In the illustration, Ellen walks along a path through the woods carrying a basket of flowers over her arm. She smiles and pulls her jacket around her as her dress, hair, and hat are blown behind her, suggesting a gusting wind in the illustration. A small house can be seen nestled in the background and a mountain rises up behind it. The scene maintains a sense of openness despite the trees that line the path along the left side of the illustration.
