Francis Bret Harte was born on August 25, 1836 in Albany New York. As a young boy Harte developed an early love of books and reading. He first published at the tender age of 11; a satirical poem titled "Autumn Musings.­" Expecting praise he encountered anything but and was later to write "Such a shock was their ridicule to me that I wonder that I ever wrote another line of verse.­" By age 13 his formal education was at an end and four years later, in 1853, the family moved to California.

Author:

Der berüchtigte Major Overstone ist es gewohnt, seinen Willen mit brutaler Gewalt und gegen jedes Gesetz durchzusetzen. Als er aber den Sheriff von Siskyou erschießt, ist das Maß voll, und er muss fliehen. In dem kleinen Gangsternest Wynyards Bar findet er Unterschlupf und schwingt sich schnell zum Anführer der Desperados auf. Er wähnt sich in Sicherheit, doch hat er die Rechnung ohne den neuen Sheriff gemacht …
Der 1836 in Albany im Staate New York geborene Bret Harte folgte in jungen Jahren der Massenwanderung von Abenteurern und Glücksrittern, die, durch fabelhafte Goldfunde angelockt, seit 1848 nach Kalifornien zogen. Als Goldgräber hatte er kein Glück, fand jedoch zunächst in der kalifornischen Stadt Eureka, dann in San Francisco eine Stellung als Journalist und begann aus eigener Anschauung das Leben der Goldgräber zu schildern. Die realistische Darstellungskunst und der dramatische Aufbau seiner kalifornischen Erzählungen, zu denen »Der Sheriff von Siskyou« gehört, machten . . .
