Francis Bret Harte was an American author and poet, who worked in a number of different professional capacities including miner, teacher, messenger and journalist before turning to full time writing in 1871.  He became famed for his short fiction featuring gold diggers. 
“Cressy” is a novel, published in 1889. The one of Harte’s long stories, “Cressy” perhaps deserves to rank first. Bret Harte had the power of drawing his characters with a few masterly strokes, and for this he needed of course a dramatic situation or episode, which is a characteristic feature of the stories. It is a peculiarity of his art that his characters stand fully revealed after a few incidents. 
The highlights of Harte's oeuvre helped establish the foundations of western American fiction. Now you have the great opportunity to get acquainted with one of his literary works! Enjoy the reading!
