• I was born in Indiana, United States of America, in 1859.
  • I moved to Texas, where I drove cattle, and later to Colorado, where I attempted gold mining.
  • At the age of 43 I began writing; my authentic accounts of American life in the days of the open range and westward expansion became immensely popular.
  • My most famous work was the The Log of a Cowboy (1903), which depicts a five-month drive of cattle from Texas to Montana. It is considered a classic of western fiction.
  • My other works include The Outlet (1905), Wells Brothers (1911) and The Ranch of the Beaver (1927)
