Five great American short story writers, dating from the turn of the nineteenth/twentieth centuries are represented here. Different in atmosphere and writing style, they nevertheless caught the mood and concerns of the day in a way that was distinctly American. Bierce's An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge leaves echoes in the imagination; the stories by Crane and London recall the themes of the Civil War and the Klondike for which they are well known. Twain's humour is to the fore in The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and O Henry's sharp observation makes his neat tales a joy to listen to. An attractive and accessible collection. This collection includes: An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge The Veteran The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County Brown Wolf After Twenty Years A Retrieved Information While the Auto Waits The Last Leaf Makes the Whole World Kin
