  • ASIN: Book Description These fifteen stories bring the California Gold Rush to life with their boisterous assemblage of rough-clad miners, pistol-packing preachers, iron-willed women, and philosophical gamblers. Theirs was an unpredictable world, filled with gold strikes and freak tragedies, when the wisdom of the gambler sometimes counted for more than that of the preacher; when normal rules were tossed aside and "the strongest man had but three fingers on his right hand; the best shot had but one eye." A master storyteller, Harte weaves tales that seem to come directly from the campfire, where the spinning of yarns and swapping of lies were the highest form of entertainment. The stories presented in this volume, among his best, still have the power to engage us completely, to make us laugh out loud, and perhaps most surprisingly, to bring a tear to the eye.

    FRANCIS BRET HARTE (1839-1902), American author, was born at Albany New York , on the 25th of August 1839. His father, a professor of Greek at the Albany College, died during his boyhood. After a common-school education he went with his mother to California at the age of seventeen, afterwards working in that state as a teacher, miner, printer, expressmessenger, secretary of the San Francisco mint , and editor. His first literary venture was a series of Condensed Novels (travesties of well-known works of fiction, somewhat in the style of Thackeray), published weekly in The Californian, of which he was editor, and reissued in book form in 1867. The Overland Monthly, the earliest considerable literary magazine on the Pacific coast, was established in 1868, with Harte as editor. His sketches and poems, which appeared in its pages during the next few years, attracted wide attention in the eastern states and in Europe Bret Harte was an early master of the short story, and his Californian tales were regarded as introducing a new genre into fiction.

    Bret Harte
    Francis Bret Harte was born in Albany, New York on August 25, 1839. His father, Henry Hart, was the son of an immigrant who had moved to America and became rich. However, Bernard left his family in order to marry again. Bret's mother, Elizabeth Rebecca Ostrander Hart, was from the English and Dutch culture and raised her child in a Dutch Reformed church. By the age of eleven, Bret had published a number of poems. In 1854 Harte went to California with his mother, a widow. While in California, Harte worked as a miner, a school teacher, an express messenger, a printer, and finally, a journalist. Harte wrote for The Northern Californian . At the beginning of 1859, Harte lost the job after he used the paper to denounce the townspeople who had massacred a tribe of peaceful Native Americans that were holding a religious festival near Eureka. In 1864 Harte was appointed to the branch mint at San Francisco. He held that office for four year, when he was invited to become the editor of the Overland Monthly . Harte met Mark Twain during this time: the later claimed Harte taught him how to write. Harte used ubiquitous newspapers to break into the literary market.

    Brief biography of the writer, by Janice Albert.
    California Authors
    Bret Harte (1836-1902)
    by Janice Albert Bret Harte's characters in bronze, Bohemian Club, Post Street side
    The year 2002 marked the one-hundredth anniversary of the death of Bret Harte, Argonaut and author. Wherever you live in California, there is probably a Bret Harte elementary, middle or high school near you. Who was Harte and what is his contribution to the life and literature of California? Although his collected work runs to many volumes, Harte's reputation is built on a handful of stories and a poem that he wrote while living in San Francisco during the years of the Gold Rush. "Tennessee's Partner," "The Outcasts of Poker Flat," "M'Liss," and "The Luck of Roaring Camp" are some of the titles that brought him international fame and caused readers to call him "the young Dickens." In these stories, Harte created a set of characters that live in the American imagination even now-the ruffian who gently helps a tiny child, the gun totin' preacher, the judge who administers justice by the seat of his pants-all these types that we know so intimately from countless TV shows and Westerns have their origin in Harte's stories of the Forty Niners.
