Product Description

Newspaperman, short-story writer, poet and satirist, Ambrose Bierce is one of the most striking and unusual literary figures America has produced. Dubbed "Bitter Bierce" for his vitriolic wit and biting satire, his fame rests largely on a celebrated compilation of barbed epigrams, The Devil's Dictionary, and a book of short stories (Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, 1891). Most of the 16 selections in this volume have been taken from the latter collection.

Stories in this edition include:

  • What I Saw at Shiloh
  • A Horseman in the sky
  • Chickamauga
  • One of the Missing
  • One Kind of Officer
  • The Mocking-bird
  • And many more!
