"Francis Bret Harte (1839 - 1902) was an American short story writer and poet, best remembered for his short stories set against the background of the California gold rush. He himself set off at the age of fifteen to become a gold miner, and absorbed the rough atmosphere of the mining camps, which he used as a setting against which the interplay of human emotions stands out poignently.
""Miggles"" is an outstanding example of his humorously tender style which made his stories so popular. "
