Author Bio for Curwood, James Oliver

James Oliver Curwood (1878-1927) was an American writer of adventure novels. Born in Michigan, he worked as a reporter and editor for the News Tribune in Detroit. He worked for the Canadian government as a tourism promoter and in those endeavours travelled extensively in the northern parts of Canada, a place he referred to afterwards as "God's Country". His experience there transformed him from a big-game hunter into a conservationist. He wrote several novels many of which have Canadian themes including The Black Hunter, A Gentleman of Courage and the Plains of Abraham. (Twentieth Century Authors)
