Stephen Crane, author of The Red Badge of Courage, wrote this short story, "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", just shortly before his death at 28. Sheriff Jack Potter returns to Yellow Sky, Texas, to show off his new bride, but Potter's nemesis has other plans for the big return. Walter Zimmerman gives a serious and enchanting performance. He animates this American Naturalist story with pregnant pauses and lyrical descriptions. He also brings to life Potter's deep Texan accent and the bride's demure, Southern drawl. Overall, Zimmerman's voice invigorates one of Crane's best-known short stories.
