Bret Harte

a.k.a. Francis Brett Harte

Author Code: ABHX

Born: Aug. 25, 1836 - Albany, New York, USA

Died: May 5, 1902 - London, England

Harte went to California in 1854 and spent some time mining before taking up journalism. He contributed numerous short stories to San Francisco periodicals and was a firm supporter of Indians, a sentiment that eventually forced him to leave town. Some of the best of Harte's early stories included The Luck of Roaring Camp (1868), Tennessee's Partner (1868) and The Outcasts of Poker Flat (1869). As editor of the Californian, he hired Mark Twain as a contributor, and eventually collaborated with him on the play Ah Sin (1877). He wrote some excellent poetry and his work brought him national acclaim. In 1871, he signed with the Atlantic Monthly and moved back East and never returned to California and the West that he wrote so much about. In 1878 he became consul at Crefeld, Germany and again at Glasgow, Scotland in 1880. He settled in England and never returned to the US. He continued to write in England and produced some fine work in Ingenue of the Sierras (1893), A Protege of Jack Hamlin's (1894), Poetical Works (1896) and Under the Redwoods (1901).
