born in Indiana, moved to Texas to become a cowboy, and during the mining boom went to Colorado, where he later wrote his stories of the cattle kingdom. He is one of the few authors of cowboy stories who are considered to have achieved high literary merit. Among his books are The Log of a Cowboy (1903), a semi-autobiographical novel of a five-month-long cattle drive from Texas to Montana, and Cattle Brands (1906), stories of frontier life in the 1880s.
