Book Jungle. Paperback. New. Paperback. 150 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 7.5in. x 0.3in.Bret Harte is best known for his stories about pioneering life in California. Harte moved to California in 1853 where he worked as a miner, journalist, teacher and messenger. The story begins, It blows, said Joe Wingate. As if to accent the words of the speaker a heavy gust of wind at that moment shook the long light wooden structure which served as the general store of Sidon settlement, in Contra Costa. Even after it had passed a prolonged whistle came through the keyhole, sides, and openings of the closed glass front doors, that served equally for windows, and filled the canvas ceiling which hid the roof above like a bellying sail. A wave of enthusiastic emotion seemed to be communicated to a line of straw hats and sou-westers suspended from a cross-beam, and swung them with every appearance of festive rejoicing, while a few dusters, overcoats, and hickory shirts hanging on the side walls exhibited such marked hough idiotic animation that it had the effect of a satirical comment on the lazy, purposeless figures of the four living inmates of the store.

When they had passed nearly six years in this dismal abode, he died in the winter, and was buried in the snow, which was dug as deep as possible to receive his corpse. Various were the expedients of these poor men to alleviate their sufferings; a lamp was made of clay, oakum, and cordage, found on the shore; and afterwards, pieces of their shirts and drawers supplied the wick, and reindeer fat served as a tolerable substitute for oil. The skins of reindeers and foxes served for bedding; and some were tanned for clothing, by steeping them in water, until the hair could be rubbed off; and then putting reindeer fat upon them, which rendered them soft and pliant. The want of awls and needles was supplied by bits of iron which they collected. Of these they made a kind of wire, which being heated redhot, was pierced with a knife ground to a sharp point, which formed the eye of a needle. The sinews of bears and reindeer, split into threads, served for sewing the pieces of leather together, which enabled them to procure jackets and trousers for summer dress; and a long fur gown, with a hood, for their winter apparel. After passing six years and three months in this rueful solitude, a Russian vessel, driven from the place of her destination, unexpectedly came in view, on the 15th of August, 1749. As soon as they perceived her, they hastened to light fires on the nearest hills, and then ran to the beach, waving a flag made of a reindeers skin fastened to a pole. The people on board observed the signals, and coming to an anchor, took the wretched sufferers on board. Tears of gratitude trickled down their cheeks at such a deliverance; for true it. . .

I find a joke or two can be encouraging to a player or team that is down. This collection of jokes as well as the t-shirts with witty sayings that I wear help lighten the atmosphere of the games and tournaments I umpire. I hope you enjoy them as much as the players and I have over the years. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Xlibris, Corp.
