Author. Born in West Salem, Wisconsin to pioneer parents, his literary career began in his early twenties when he moved to Boston, Massachusetts. His first success, "Main-Travelled Roads", was published in 1891 and began a string of unflinchingly realistic depictions of frontier settler life that culminated with "A Son of the Middle Border" and "A Daughter of the Middle Border", for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1921. He became a popular lecturer on literary topics and, in addition to his prairie and western writing, he maintained a life-long fascination with psychic phenomena. He died in Hollywood California.
