Set during the American Civil War, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is the classic short story of Peyton Farquhar, a Confederate sympathizer condemned to death by hanging from Owl Creek Bridge. Flashing between the present and the past-from Peyton's thoughts as he stands on the bridge to his memories as a major Confederate supporter in the South-he creates parallel realities in which truth and fantasy become indistinguishable. A story of war, death, and the power of the mind, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is Ambrose Bierce's most anthologized work and an enduring piece of American literature. Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
