Meet the Author

Francis Bret Harte (1836-1902) was a prolific American writer and poet. Born in New York, Harte moved to California in 1853 and worked as a miner, teacher, messenger, and journalist. In 1860 he wrote an editorial condemning a massacre of Wiyot Indians by settlers; the ensuing outcry forced Harte to quit his job as assistant editor of THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIAN. He soon turned to a literary career, and returned to the east coast in 1870. Harte was appointed U.S. Consul in Krefeld, Germany in 1878, and spent the final twenty-four years of his life in Europe. He continued writing, often focusing on pioneer life in California.
