1894. Illustrated. 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 M'liss, helped establish the foundations of western American fiction. Contents: The Bell-Ringer of Angel's; Johnnyboy; Young Robin Gray; The Sheriff of Siskyou; A Rose of Glenbogie; The Mystery of the Hacienda; Chu Chu; and My First Book.

Where the North Fork of the Stanislaus River begins to lose its youthful grace, vigor, and agility, and broadens more maturely into the plain, there is a little promontory which at certain high stages of water lies like a small island in the stream. To the strongly- marked heroics of Sierran landscape it contrasts a singular, pastoral calm. White and gray mosses from the overhanging rocks and feathery alders trail their filaments in its slow current, and between the woodland openings there are glimpses of vivid velvet sward, even at times when the wild oats and wire-grasses of the plains are already yellowing.
