Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Hamlin Garland
 
  Blurred the air like blown sand.  1
  Flutter like snowflakes.  2
  Hastened like homing pigeons, which do not look behind.  3
  Hot as hate.  4
  Lonely as the Arctic Sea.  5
  Quiet as a sleeping boa.  6
  Rapt as sleep.  7
  Ran like hell-hounds.  8
  Snarl like a monster at meat.  9
  An innumerable crowd spread like a black robe over the shore.  10
  Submissive as earth.  11
