From Sand Hill to Pine

From Sand Hill to Pine

About this book

Bret Harte is a fondly remembered western writer who spent only eighteen of his sixty-six years in the American west -- in fact, he went on, in 1878, to get work as an American consul in Germany, and as far as we can tell, never came back to the United States. He died in 1902, and was buried in the churchyard of St. Peter's Church, in Frimley, Surrey, England.

Even so, the American west was in his heart, and that was what he wrote about -- here, in "From Sand Hill to Pine," including stories like "A Niece of Snapshot Harry's," "A Treasure of the Redwoods," "A Belle of Canada City," "What Happened at the Fonda," "A Jack and Jill of the Sierras," and "Mr. Bilson's Housekeeper." Harte was a wonderful writer; this is a volume you won't want to miss.
