Quick Reference


Nebraska-born author, lived as a boy and into his late thirties mostly in New Mexico, where he was both cowboy and writer, and, after a long residence in New York (1906–26), returned late in life to New Mexico and California. He wrote a great many stories for The Saturday Evening Post and other popular journals, sometimes revising and expanding these, so that his novel Bransford in Arcadia (1914), variously retitled in reprints, was an outgrowth of “The Little Eohippus,” and West Is West (1917) fused several stories. The others of his ten novels, mainly about ranch and range life in the Southwest, were not only widely read but were praised for their interpretations of cowboy life and their descriptions of its scene.
