    ENGLISH: Six stories by Bret Harte. The first two, the one giving title to the book and "An ingenue of the sierras," are very-well known, frequently anthologized, and quite good. The third story, "The reformation of James Reddy," is also interesting, as the tale of a prodigal man saved by love (although the girl is quite unfeeling). The other three tales are less interesting, in my opinion. ESPAÑOL: Seis cuentos de Bret Harte.

Los dos primeros, el que da título al libro y "Una ingenua de las sierras", son muy muy buenos, bastante conocidos, y se los incluye frecuentemente en antologías. La tercera historia, "La reforma de James Reddy", también es interesante: es la historia de un pródigo salvado por el amor (aunque la chica no se conmueve con facilidad). Los otros tres cuentos son menos interesantes, en mi opinión.
