Stewart Edward White's books were popular at a time when America was losing its vanishing wilderness. He was a keen observer of the beauties of nature and human nature, yet could render them in a plain-spoken style. I have salted in humor and sympathy for colorful characters such as canny Indian guides and "greenhorn" campers who carried too much gear. In the film The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs, the Coen brothers, there is an adaptation of the short story The Gal Who Got Rattled that is included in this book.
Join us in these seven short stories chosen by the critic August Nemo and have a good reading!
