This is a nice free collection of short stories by Bret Harte. It's actually my first introduction to his work, since I was never required to read his things in school and his name wasn't exactly brought up with the frequency of Twain, Faulkner, et. al.

So anyway, the best thing about this is obviously the fact that it's free, and it's a collection of stories.

The only slight downside is that there is no active table of contents. This means you'll pretty much have to search for the stories you want.

Here's the table of contents, so you know what you're getting:

INTRODUCTION
THE LUCK OF ROARING CAMP
THE OUTCASTS OF POKER FLAT
MIGGLES
TENNESSEE'S PARTNER
THE IDYL OF RED GULCH
BROWN OF CALAVERAS
HIGH-WATER MARK
A LONELY RIDE
THE MAN OF NO ACCOUNT
MLISS
THE RIGHT EYE OF THE COMMANDER
NOTES BY FLOOD AND FIELD
AN EPISODE OF FIDDLETOWN
BARKER'S LUCK
A YELLOW DOG
A MOTHER OF FIVE
BULGER'S REPUTATION
IN THE TULES
A CONVERT OF THE MISSION
THE INDISCRETION OF ELSBETH
THE DEVOTION OF ENRIQUEZ

Bret liked to use many flowery words in long sentences. I checked one line and it had 80 some words in it. The majority of his story board I found to be weak. There were perhaps only 5 or 6 what I considered to be good short stories in the lot. Someone else may love them.

I came across the author after reading a book about John Hay. I purchased the book only because it was free. I could not get into it
