Author Bio for Oxley, James Macdonald

Author Image

James MacDonald Oxley (1855-1907) was a Canadian author of juvenile fiction. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he attended Dalhousie University and Harvard. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1878. He ended up working for the Sun Life Assurance Company and spent the remainder of his life working for them in Toronto. He started writing in 1889 and wrote 31 books for boys - adventure tales centered around the theme of a boy whose courage is tested in the wilderness. Many of his books have remote settings but some of them featured his native Nova Scotia such as "The Wreckers of Sable Island" and "In Paths of Peril" both of which are available on Faded Page.
