The defining stories from one of America's great wits In the mid-nineteenth century, the Wild West grabbed ahold of American consciousness and never let go. With the discovery of gold, all eyes and wagons turned westward. This collection of stories brings readers back to the American frontier. In "The Luck of Roaring Camp," when a Native American woman dies in childbirth, the miners take it upon themselves to raise the child. Naming the baby Luck, the miners learn more about responsibility and class through raising the boy than they have through anything else in their lives. Other stories in the collection include classic prospecting-set short stories such as "Tennessee's Partner" and "The Outcasts of Poker Flat" and the short novels "Muck-a-Muck" and "Selina Sedilia." In this timeless collection, Bret Harte has captured the California gold rush as no other writer could. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.… (mer)

The lively tale of the title Luck of Roaring Camp story ends with unexpected sadness.

Not knowing what to expect of Bret Harte and this collection, I was surprised to find the second story,
The Outcasts of Poker Flat, equally hopeless and sad and lets readers down with "nigger-luck."

MIGGLES is as annoying as its name.
TENNESSEE's PARTNER, though also sad, has the first sign of humor.

MUCK is yuck.

Redeeming?

M'liss has a readable plot. George T. a good guy.

The rest is a miss mashing of stereotypes.

Memorable!= the freedom of that singing gambler in "Brown of Calaveras" and the name Slumgullion. ( )

I think this is the right book. I got it on the kindle. It includes the Luck of Roaring Camp stories, and then other stuff...these weird "Condensed Novels", which are short chaptered tales, written in the style of famous writers. There are a combination of story & satire. And the legends, and then the "earlier papers." It is great stuff!
