The time is the 1880's. A young Swede arrives at the hotel of a moody, frontier Nebraska town. He anticipates the wild west of the dime novels and parlays that anticipation into his own death. Unable to relate to his new environment, the Swede is antagonistic to his hotelkeeper and fellow guests. A fateful card game results in accusations of cheating, a fight, and a violent climax. Original story by Stephen Crane. (American Short Story Series)
