The Luck of Roaring Camp by Bret Harte

The only woman in a California mining camp dies giving birth. As any of the men could have been the father, they do the right thing and become the babies collective parent.
There really was a place called Roaring Camp but it wasn’t a mining camp. Harte apparently liked the name and used it. The text for this story may be found at Search authors for Harte, Bret.
