Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

Experience the Old West in this evocative collection of Bret Harte stories. More than 100 years after his short stories began appearing, Harte's influence on the American literary tradition has become legendary. His character, Jack Hamlin, is the template for many a poised, chivalrous Western gambler, and Miss Mary is the prototypical schoolmarm. Included in this collection are "The Luck of Roaring Camp," "Tennessee's Partner," "The Idyl of Red Gulch," "How Santa Claus Came to Simpson's Bar, "Brown of Calaveras," "Miggles," "A Passage in the Life of Mr. John Oakhurst" and "The Outcasts of Poker Flats."
