Meet the Author


Emerson Hough (1857–1923) wrote for such popular magazines such as Forest and Stream and the Saturday Evening Post. An 1894 article that he wrote led Congress to take action to preserve the dwindling bison herd at Yellowstone National Park. His first book on the West, The Story of the Cowboy (1897) won him the admiration and friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and Andy Adams. Hough went on to publish several best-selling novels over the course of his career, including The Mississippi Bubble (1902) and 5440 or Fight (1909).
