Summary

"Master and Man" is a story by Leo Tolstoy (1895). "It happened in the seventies in winter, on the day after St. Nicholas's Day. There was a fete in the parish and the innkeeper, Vasili Andreevich Brekhunov, a Second Guild merchant, being a church elder had to go to church, and had also to entertain his relatives and friends at home. But when the last of them had gone he at once began to prepare to drive over to see a neighbouring proprietor about a grove which he had been bargaining over for a long time. He was now in a hurry to start, lest buyers from the town might forestall him in making a profitable purchase."

Great Tolstoy short story of redemption

I've been on a Tolstoy kick and listened to this short story. Narrator wasn't the best, but better than some other's I've listened to recently.
This story can be summed up as rich, shady businessman cheats hardworking man, puts them both in danger of dying, then finds redemption for himself in the end.
