Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Founded in 1868, the Overland Monthly was a San Francisco–based literary magazine whose mix of humor, pathos, and romantic nostalgia for a lost frontier was an immediate sensation on the East Coast. Due in part to a regional desire to attract settlers and financial investment, the essays and short fiction published in the Overland Monthly often portrayed the American West as a civilized evolution of, and not a savage regression from, eastern bourgeois modernity and democracy. Stories about the American West have for centuries been integral to the way we imagine freedom, the individual, and the possibility for alternate political realities. Reading for Liberalism examines the shifting literary and narrative construction of liberal selfhood in California in the late nineteenth century through case studies of a number of western American writers who wrote for the Overland Monthly, including Noah Brooks, Ina Coolbrith, Bret Harte, Jack London, John Muir, and Frank Norris, among others. Reading for Liberalism argues that Harte, the magazine’s founding editor, and the other members of the Overland group critiqued and reimagined the often invisible fabric of American freedom. Reading for Liberalism uncovers and examines in the text of the Overland Monthly the relationship between wilderness, literature, race, and the production of individual freedom in late nineteenth-century California.

Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 5: Devoted to the Development of the Country; July, 1870 The smooth and carefully braided hair Of the girls and women, with their fresh muslins and calicoes, and, above all, the peaceful leisure of this one day, gave to all an air Of refinement and repose. The trio sat at the end of one table with heads bent forward, communicating with engrossed, exclusive air.

Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 29: January-June, 1897 The campaign plagiarist, in the magazines and out, worked generally on the same model, he combined in an article on some phase of the burning questions of the day extracts, without credit or quotation marks, from speeches, essays, edito rials, statistics, and campaign literature, under one head and signed his name to the pot-pourri as the veritable author. He did it skilfully, therefore he was excused with a smile. Again he was within the Byronic definition. Plagiarism, to be sure, is branded of old, but is never criminal except when done in a clumsy way, like stealing among the Spartans.

Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 45: June, 1905 Novelists and agitators, and as pirants for political preferment for the profits, comforts and authority of office, tell us that there is a wide spread and deep - rooted social revo lution in every land, which is true, always has been true and will con tinue to be true so long as there are two or more people on earth. The objective point of every man's en deavor in the world of flesh and blood is a condition which insures elegant leisure. Not that he would accept it, if acquired, but the satis faction in knowing that he may en joy it if he wants to is what the striving Is for. It is this striving for that which one would not accept ai ter acquiring the privilege that is the hte which heats the iron which the God of civilization fashions into lad ders for human-kind to climb to higher and still higher levels of at tainment in every avenue of human progress, and the war of the classes supplies the fuel that heats the iron. It is an irrepressible'con flict between the working class and the capitalist class - it is the sudra class struggling to be the merchant class, the merchant class to be the gentry class, the gentry class to be the nobility class, and out of this comes only good, albeit all swing the Cainish club. It must be so by the law of being, and could not be otherwise unless the human family were reduced to two persons and one of them an idiot, but the sane one would himself become insane, for of the friction of competition is born mental Vigor.

Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 2 The vowel is often duplicated in monosyllables to indicate that the first is to have its long sound as feet, seen, and green. Two different vowels are often placed in juxtaposition for the same purpose as rain, moan, gauge. The addition of mute e to words, al though some dispute has arisen con cerning its origin, is at present but an orthographical expedient to indicate the long sound of the preceding vowel: as not, note, man, mane, pan, pane, rat, rate, pin, pine, etc.; the words of this class being exceedingly numerous. In general, all double consonants indicate the short sound of a preceding vowel. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 55: January-June, 1910 James Barton saw approaching this first Christmas without her, and his heart was wrung. Qne evening Pollie said to him, Daddy, people can't have Christmas without any mamma, can they? He groaned and his head fell on the table. Then he shot up so quickly that the little girl jumped in fright. What was it Spoke to him, and bade him make his babies as happy as he could? He did not reason about it, but hugging the child close, said: Not like when mamma was here, but we will have the best that we can without her. She wants us to.
