About the Author
James Oliver Curwood (1878-1927), an American novelist and conservationist, was born in Owosso. He attended the University of Michigan, where he studied journalism. In 1900, he became a news reporter for the Detroit News-Tribune, to which he also contributed his first story. His 1909 trip into the Canadian northwest inspired him to write his wilderness adventure stories. Curwoods famous works include The Valley of Silent Men (1920) and The Flaming Forest (1921).
