Openings in the Old Trail

Author: Bret Harte Format: eBook Release Date: 26/06/2018

Although American author Bret Harte is most readily associated with stories about the West, it is his skill with characterization that distinguishes him from the hundreds of others who set fictional tales in the region. The miners, soldiers, gamblers, entrepreneurs, and lost souls who populate these pages are limned with Harte's unique combination of dry wit and tender pathos.This charming collection of Harte's short stories focuses on life in old California and includes "e;Openings in the Old Trail,"e; "e;Colonel Starbottle for the Plaintiff,"e; "e;The Landlord of the Big Flume Hotel,"e; "e;A Buckeye Hollow Inheritance,"e; "e;The Reincarnation of Smith,"e; "e;Lanty Foster's Mistake,"e; "e;An Ali Baba of the Sierras,"e; "e;Miss Peggy's Proteges,"e; and "e;The Goddess of Excelsior."e;

Tale of the Argonauts

Tale of the Argonauts

Author: Bret Harte Format: eBook Release Date: 10/05/2018

The Argonauts are the gold seekers of 1849 and the years immediately following. These adventurers came from all quarters of the globe and all ranks of society, and they had in common only the possession of the strength and determination necessary to reach the new Colchis. Here they lived, at first, wholly free from the conventional restraints imposed by an organized society, and each man showed himself for what he was. Many of these primitive social conditions still existed when Harte went to California in 1854, and they made a great impression on the observant boy. He did not use them in literature, however, until he was able to look back on them in the light of experience.

Phyllis of the Sierras

Author: Bret Harte, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 01/02/2018

Though born in Albany, New York, American author Francis Bret Harte went on to become one of the foremost chroniclers of pioneer life in the American West, with a particular focus on California. A Phyllis of the Sierras highlights Harte at his gritty, authentic best. Bret Harte (August 25, 1836 - May 5, 1902) was an American short story writer and poet, best remembered for his short fiction featuring miners, gamblers, and other romantic figures of the California Gold Rush. In a career spanning more than four decades, he wrote poetry, fiction, plays, lectures, book reviews, editorials, and magazine sketches in addition to fiction. As he moved from California to the eastern U.S. to Europe, he incorporated new subjects and characters into his stories, but his Gold Rush tales have been most often reprinted, adapted, and admired.

Sappho of Green Springs

Sappho of Green Springs

Author: Bret Harte Format: eBook Release Date: 22/11/2017

America has always had a fascination with the Wild West, and schoolchildren grow up learning about famous Westerners like Wyatt Earp, Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hicock, as well as the infamous shootout at O.K. Corral. Pioneering and cowboys and Indians have been just as popular in Hollywood, with Westerners helping turn John Wayne and Clint Eastwood into legends on the silver screen. HBO's Deadwood, about the historical 19th century mining town on the frontier was popular last decade. Not surprisingly, a lot has been written about the West, and one of the best known writers about the West in the 19th century was Francis Bret Harte (1836-1902), who wrote poetry and short stories during his literary career. Harte was on the West Coast by the 1860s, placing himself in perfect position to document and depict frontier life.

Tales of the Argonauts (Serapis Classics)

Tales of the Argonauts (Serapis Classics)

Author: Bret Harte Format: eBook Release Date: 12/11/2017

The Argonauts are the gold seekers of 1849 and the years immediately following. These adventurers came from all quarters of the globe and all ranks of society, and they had in common only the possession of the strength and determination necessary to reach the new Colchis. Here they lived, at first, wholly free from the conventional restraints imposed by an organized society, and each man showed himself for what he was. Many of these primitive social conditions still existed when Harte went to California in 1854, and they made a great impression on the observant boy. He did not use them in literature, however, until he was able to look back on them in the light of experience.
