The Luck of Roaring Camp.
by Bret Harte. London: The Reader’s Library (n.d.)
I admit, it’s not hilarious. It’s just not quite there. But I collected it anyhow because–it’s such an odd title. If the camp is a place, how can it have luck? But, as it was written in the middle of the Nineteenth Century, I don’t imagine that the camp could be a person.
On the other hand, there are stories here titled ‘The Outcasts of Poker Flat’,’Melons’ and ‘On a Vulgar Little Boy’ among others, so the volume certainly has its points of interest.
