Think Mark Twain meets Jack London. If you’re a lover of great American short stories, Bret Harte is an essential, if oft-forgotten, name in the canon. Harte’s stories are by turns folksy and brutal, bringing a Twainian folksy wit to the hard landscapes of the American West. In the title story, a plucky group of gold prospectors find themselves raising a child in the wilderness. Victor Raider-Wexler brings a weathered, gruff charm to his performance of these classic tales. He’s the knowing old hand telling stories around the campfire you hope never burns out.
