The Luck of Roaring Camp - Bret Harte

What an ending!!

Sometimes I felt there was a lot going on at once, and had to read it all very slowly to get the gist of it. Not sure why the men thought of getting a woman for, 'The Luck', but other than that part the story drew me in deep. I wish the baby had grown into one of them though, but then the story would have been less poetic.
I'm not sure everyone will appreciate, or even grasp this story. It might be a bit too cleverly written for everyone's taste.
