Tales of soldiers & civilians by Ambrose Bierce( Book )

Questing after Pancho Villa's revolutionary forces, Ambrose Bierce rode into Mexico in 1913 and was never seen again. He left behind him the Devil's Dictionary and a remarkable body of short fiction. This collection gathers some of Bierce's finest stories, including the celebrated Civil War fiction 'An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,' his macabre masterpieces, and his tales of supernatural horror. Reminiscent of Poe, these stories are marked by a sardonic humour and a realistic study of tense emotional states

A Gil Blas in California by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

4 editions published between 1933 and 1947 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was one of France's most acclaimed novelists of the nineteenth century. A Gil Blas in California (1933) is an English translation of a work first published in Brussels in 1852, with Dumas presenting it as his rendering of a young Frenchman's firsthand account of his adventures in the California Gold Rush. Many critics doubt its claims as a work of non-fiction. The tale covers a voyage round the Horn from Le Havre, life at French Camp, San Francisco fires, California farming and wildlife, hunting trips near Sonoma and in the Mariposa Valley, and a visit to San José
