Contents: Henryk Sienkiewicz was a Polish journalist and a Nobel Prize in Literature (in 1905) novelist. He is best remembered for his historical novels, especially for his internationally known best-seller Quo Vadis (1896).
In 1876 when Sienkiewicz was just 30 he traveled to the United States with Polish actress Helena Modjeska and her husband, first to New York and later to California. These seven stories were inspired by his California travels and were later written in San Francisco, Paris, and Poland in 1877-1878. This book presents the seven stories translated, edited, and annotated by Marion Moore Coleman.
