Alta Live: What Really Happened to Ambrose Bierce?
In 1913, prolific American journalist and author Ambrose Bierce crossed over the Mexico border and never returned. His unexplained disappearance is one of the most mysterious and mythologized in American literary history. Alta Journal contributor Geoffrey Gray explored one theory: that Bierce was executed in Sierra Mojada by federal officers who believed he was a spy and that Bierce’s remains are still buried in the Mexican desert. Join Gray and historian William Deverell as they dig into their theories about Bierce with Alta Live.
