Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) August 10, 2019  -  00:30  A.M. (GMT) August 11 - for a discussion of "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky" by Steven Crane.  We have discussed several of Crane's stories in the past and we have always had interesting discussions about them.

This story tells a tale of the "old west" where men were men and women weren't.  In a somewhat humorous way it delves into the culture and mores of 19th century Texas.  

Crane specialized in stories of the wild frontiers of America, from cowboys in Texas to 48ers in California to prospectors in Alaska.  He was a master of capturing the flavor of the primitive societies he described.  He is probably most known for his short novel, "The Red Badge of Courage" which describes the fears of a young soldier in the American Civil War.

This story is available on the author's web site at:

Please note, this story is a bit longer than our usual selections.  It is; however; written in a straight forward manner and can be read without pausing to reread sentences to figure out what the writer meant and, therefore should not take too awfully long to read.  I hope to see you all at our chat.  Don't forget to bring a friend.
