About the Author

Horace Annesley Vachell (30 October 1861 – 10 January 1955) was a prolific English writer of novels, plays, short stories, essays and autobiographical works. In about 1883, he went to California, where he became partner in a land company and married Lydie Phillips, his partner's daughter. His wife died in 1895 after the birth of their second child.

After 17 years abroad, by 1900 Vachell was back in England and went on to write over 50 volumes of fiction. Although some of his work, like the stories in Bunch Grass, is set in American ranching country, much of his writing concerns a comfortably prosperous English way of life.
