Our story today is called The California's Tale. It was written by Mark Twain, here is Shep O'Neal with the story.

When I was young, I went looking for gold in Califonia. I never found enough to make me rich, but I did discover a beautiful part of the country. It was called the

Stanislaus.

The Stanislaus was like heaven on earth. It had bright green hills and deep forests where soft winds touched the trees. Other men also looking for gold had reached the Stanislaus hills of California many years before I did, they had built a town in the valley with sidewalks and stores, banks and schools. They had also built pretty little houses for their families.

At first they found a lot of gold in the Stanislaus hills, but their good luck did not last. After a few years, the gold disappeared. By the time I reached the Stanislaus all the people were gone to. Grasses now grew in the street and little houses were covered by wild rose bushes, only the sound of insects filled the air as I walked through the empty town that summer day so long ago.

Then I realized I was not alone after all. A man was smiling at me as he stood in

front of one of the little houses. This house was not covered by wild rose bushes. A nice little garden in front of the house was full of blue and yellow flowers.
White curtains hang from the window and floated in the soft summer wind. Still smiling, the man opened the door of his house and motions to me. I went inside and could not believe my eyes.

I had been living for weeks in rough mining camps with other gold miners. We slept

on the hard ground, ate canned beans from cold metal place and spent our days in the difficult search for gold.
Here in this little, my spirit seemed to come to life again. I saw a bright rug on the shining wood floor. Pictures hang all around the room and on little tables there were seashell, books and china vases full of flowers. A woman had made this house into a home. The pleasure I felt in my heart must had shown on my face. The man read my thoughts.
"Yes." he smiled, "It is all her work. Everything in this room has felt the touch of her hand."

now the weekly Special English programmes: American Stories. Our  story today is  called the Californian's Tale. It was written by Mark Twin. Here's Sheph O'neal with the story.

When I was young, i went looking for gold in California. I never found enough to make me rich, but I did discover a beautiful part of the country. It was called s. The s. is like heaven on earth.
It had bright green hills and deep forest where soft winds touch the trees. Other men also looking for gold had reach the S. Hills many years before I did. They had build a town in the valley with sidewalks, food stores, banks and schools.They had also built pretty little houses for their families. At first, they found a lot of gold, but their good luck did not last. After a few years the gold disappeared. By the time i reached the S. Hills, all the people had gone, too. The grass now grew in the streets, the little house were covered by wild rose bushes, only the sound of insects filled the air as i walked through the empty town at the summer day so long ago. Then i realized that i was not alone after all. A man was smiling at me when he stood in front of one of the little houses. This house was not covered by the wild rose bushes. A nice garden in front of the house was full of blue and yellow flowers. White curtains  hang from the window and floated in the soft summer wind. Still smiling, the man opened the door of his house and motioned to me, i went inside. I couldn't believe my eyes. I had been living for weeks in rough mining camp with other gold miners, slept on the hard ground and ate canned beans from the cold metal plates and spent our days in the difficult search for gold. Here in this little house, my spirit seemed to come to life again. I saw a bright rug on the shining wooden floor, pictures hang all around the room and on little tables, there were seashells, books and china vases full of flowers. It is a woman who had made this house into a home.

The pleasure I felt in my heart must have shown on my face. The man read my thoughts."yes" he smiled: "It's her work, everything in this room has the touch of her hand"
