An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge : and other stories by Ambrose Bierce( )

A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man's hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck. It was attached to a stout cross-timber above his head and the slack fell to the level of his knees. Some loose boards laid upon the sleepers supporting the metals of the railway supplied a footing for him and his executioners--two private soldiers of the Federal army, directed by a sergeant who in civil life may have been a deputy sheriff. From the opening to An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

The education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams( Recording )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few works have so firmly established their position in American literature as The education of Henry Adams. As a man of extraordinary gifts and learning and a member of one of the greatest American families, Henry Adams wrote an insightful exploration of himself and the tumultuous age in which he lived. In the words of Van Wyck Brooks, he "revealed a phase of American history with unparalleled boldness and truth." In spite of his illustrious background and Harvard schooling, Henry Adams asserts that his conventional education was defective because it did not prepare him to live in a world transformed by the new science and the new technology. His intention was to write a kind of handbook to prepare "young men, in universities and elsewhere, to be men of the world, equipped for any emergency." The result is what many consider to be one of the finest autobiographies ever written
