Meet the Author

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.

    dark yet interesting...

    to find this title after so man years outside highschool is truly remarkable. thank god for the simple pleasures like chatting with a former american literature instructor, and to have her remind me that such a classic was real, and not the product of my own overly active mind. the story, in it's portrayal, has quite the turn at the end, leaving one to wonder just exactly how so much could take place within the beat of a heart. a masterpiece that should be a required reading by all students, regardless of age. this will be one that my 7 year old will find fascinating.
