Book Description:
Bret Harte ha sido llamado con razón «el Dickens de los pioneros»: ilustrando con humor y sentimiento el coraje y la virtud de los primeros colonos, dio a conocer el salvaje Oeste a los lectores «civilizados» de la Costa Este, para quienes en aquel tiempo California era pura leyenda, e implantó una serie de arquetipos perdurables de una región que aún era una tierra prometida. Estos Cuentos del Oeste son un homenaje a los aventureros, a los tahúres, a los bandidos, a las prostitutas, a las soñadoras, a las valientes, gente que, a pesar de vivir en circunstancias excepcionales, no renuncian a la dignidad. - Introducción por Phileas Fogg
