Bret Harte's Gold Rush: "Outcasts of Poker Flat", "The Luck of Roaring Camp", "Tennessee's Partner", and Other Favorites
Heyday Books, 1997 - 178 strani
These fifteen stories bring the California Gold Rush to life with their boisterous assemblage of rough-clad miners, pistol-packing preachers, iron-willed women, and philosophical gamblers. Theirs was an unpredictable world, filled with gold strikes and freak tragedies, when the wisdom of the gambler sometimes counted for more than that of the preacher. A master storyteller, Harte weaves tales that seem to come directly from the campfire, where the spinning of yarns and swapping of lies were the highest form of entertainment.
