Bret Harte: The Queen of the Pirate Isle

Language:
English
Genres:
Childrens Fiction

Francis Bret Harte (1836 – 1902) was a famous American author and poet mostly known for his short fiction stories about adventures of miners, gamblers, and other fine figures of the California Gold Rush. “The Queen of the Pirate Isle” is a quaint story about children with very rich imaginations written by an author who didn't have a habit to write for children. Lots of critics doubt he intended it for children, as the ending is rather confused, and it seems to really have been written to tell the story of how a particular mine got discovered, which is more along the lines of what Harte wrote about. However, the beautiful illustrations by Kate Greenaway tend to push it toward the children's lit category.
