    I just finished reading the 34 page long introduction of this book, by the editor. Very interesting, but perhaps a bit wordy and full of himself, but good information of the formation of stories about the old West. Bob Sawatzki, you would like this book! The first short story by Bret Harte, was Muck-a-Muck. Kind of weird and not sure I understood it. I have read other things by the author i enjoyed. Looking forward to more.
