Harris, Frank: Elder Conklin. V1. 17 Feb 2011
This was Harris' first book, generally well received by the critics of his day. It demonstrates his gift for story-telling, particularly in the title story: set in the Kansas that Harris had known some twenty years before, it tells of an old man, his daughter and their lodger. Each is wonderfully cussed in their own way, leading to a predictably unfortunate climax.
THE SHERIFF AND HIS PARTNER.
A MODERN IDYLL.
THE BEST MAN IN GAROTTE.
