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."
