1875. Bret Harte's witty, sometimes heart-rending tales of frontier California earned him acclaim during the 1860s as the new prophet of American letters. His books, The Luck of Roaring Camp, The Outcasts of Poker Flat and Mliss, helped establish the foundations of western American fiction. Contents: The Rose of Tuolumne; A Passage in the Life of Mr. John Oakhurst; Wan Lee, the Pagan; How Old Man Plunkett Went Home; The Fool of Five Forks; Baby Sylvester; An Episode of Fiddletown; and A Jersey Centenarian.
