Publisher's Description

Peyton Farquhar, a confederate sympathizer, stands to be hanged for his role in a plot to demolish Owl Creek Bridge. As he awaits death, Farquhar considers the possibility of escape—the chances of slipping his bonds, swimming to safety, and returning to his family. “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” recounts the final moments before Farquhar is hanged, exploring the feelings of a man facing his death, and the close relationship between life and death.

Known for both its irregular time sequence and its surprising ending, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” is the most anthologized of Ambrose Bierce’s stories.

Author Bio

Ambrose Bierce was an American writer, critic and war veteran. Bierce fought for the Union Army during the American Civil War, eventually rising to the rank of brevet major before resigning from the Army following an 1866 expedition across the Great Plains. Bierce’s harrowing experiences during the Civil War, particularly those at the Battle of Shiloh, shaped a writing career that included editorials, novels, short stories and poetry. Among his most famous works are “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” “The Boarded Window,” “Chickamauga,” and What I Saw of Shiloh. While on a tour of Civil-War battlefields in 1913, Bierce is believed to have joined Pancho Villa’s army before disappearing in the chaos of the Mexican Revolution.
