Ambrose Bierce’s Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, also published under the title In the Midst of Life

An engaging collection of short stories, by probably the most important writer who was a combat soldier in the Civil War, and one of the darkest and death-haunted voices in American literature.

Based on Bierce’s own experiences during the war, including his most famous piece, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.

Scarce!  Water damage on bds.; weak ft. hng.; rub; lt. ch. extr.; else very good.

Bierce, Ambrose.  TALES OF SOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS.  San Francisco: 1891.  1st ed., 300p.  Eicher #726
