I purchased this at the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse after hearing about Crane's adventure in the sinking of the Commodore and open boat trip to the Florida coast. The short story The Open Boat is his fictional account of the experience. The stories, The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky and The Blue Hotel are based on his experiences out west. The first story he published, Maggie: a Girl of the Streets is about poor Irish immigrants in New York and Crane captures the poverty and grime of that existence. ( )

These stories were much better than I expected. What a pity that literature lost Stephen Crane at such a young age. I'm sure we would have got some classic stuff from him had he lived longer. ( )
