Considered by many to be one of the first Latin American masters of the short story, Horacio Quiroga is author of some 200 pieces of fiction often compared to that of Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, and Edgar Allan Poe. Among this collection of tales selected by the author himself are stories of sickness, family tragedy, personal despair, and geographical exile, and also the frequent brutality of man.
