Now weekly the special English program American stories. Our story today is called the CA's tale. it was written by Mark Twain, here is Shxx Nxx with the story.

When I was young, I went to look for gold in CA, I never found enough to make me rich, but I did discover our beautiful part of the country. It was call the Stanislaus, the Stanislaus was like heaven on earth. It had bright green hills, and deep forests where soft wind touched the trees. Other men also look for gold, and reached the Stanislaus hills of CA many years before I did, they here build a town in the valley with side walk, stores, banks and schools. they had also built pretty little houses for their families.

 At first they found a lot gold in the Stanislaus hills, but their good luck didn't last. After a few years, the gold disappeared, by the time I reached the Stanislaus all the people were gone to xxx in the street and little houses were covered by wild xx bushes, only the sound of insects filled the air as I went 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 wild xx bushes. a nice garden in front of was full of blue and yellow flowers. Quite curtains hang from the window flowed 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 lived for weeks in rough mining camps with other gold miners. we slept on the hard ground it can't be from cold metal place and spent our days in the difficult search for gold. here in this little, my spirit seems to come to life again. I saw a bright rug on this shining wood floor. Pictures hang all around the room and on little tables there were seashell, books, and china vessels full of flowers. A women had made this house into a home. The pleasure I felt in my heart must had shown in my face. The man read my thoughts, yes, he smiled, it was all her work, everything in this room has felt the touch of her hand. [ 本帖最后由 jacobhuang 于 2008-3-8 12:59 编辑 ]
