Summary

“Stephen Crane's Books.” Dallas Morning News, October 1, 1900, p. 10

With the war in China and the war in South Africa overshadowing our present interests, the events in our great war with Spain are sinking back into the uncertain dimness of the past. Some people have forgotten how great and exciting were the victories which thrilled us hardly two years ago. It takes a book like Stephen Crane's “Wounds in the Rain,” published by Frederick A. Stokes & Co., (New York) to revive in us memories of imperishable deeds done by the United States naval and land forces. It seems safe to predict that the book will have a great sale, not only because of its inherent interest, but because it is the last book the public is to receive from Stephen Crane, owing to his untimely death. The present volume is made up of stories and sketches of the war in Cuba collected from the various magazines in which they appeared.

Stephen Crane's career was short but brilliant. His “Red Badge of Courage” won instant recognition from the public both in England and America and placed the young author prominently before the literary world as a writer from whom much might be expected. It was considered rather remarkable that a young man barely in his twenties should be able to write a story of the civil war in which the battle scenes were vividly realistic.
