Editorial Reviews

Young Carter Druse has asleep at his post. The son of a wealthy Virginian, Carter has joined the Union forces, to his father's dismay. When he wakes, he is stunned at the sight of a Confederate soldier riding a horse in the distance. He contemplates the beauty of the moment, agonizing over whether to kill the man. But as a soldier, he is bound by duty to pull the trigger. Ambrose Bierce's narrative comes to a brutally ironic conclusion, but Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross emphasize his beautiful prose with a deliberate style that savors his descriptions of Carter's torment.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the More Classic American Short Stories collection.
Here are eight stories from master American writers of the 19th century. They vary from sinister tales by Ambrose Bierce - why is that window boarded up? - and a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, but forced to look after children, to classic short stories by O. Henry and Stephen Crane. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans. Read with sensitivity and skill by Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross.
