Bindloss was an Englishman who, after travelling about Africa and other British colonies, located to western Canada, where he absorbed the local coloring which later entered into many of his best novels. . . . His prose is natural and flowing, if overly formal at times, and his novels generally full of action and high dramatic touches. He wrote steadily until the time of his death, producing over 100 novels--sometimes as many as two or three per year.--http://www.angelfire.com/planet/edwardian/bindloss.htm [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Bindloss, Harold

Author Image

Harold Edward Bindloss (1866 - December 30, 1945) was an English novelist who wrote many adventure novels set in western Canada.

Bindloss was born in Liverpool in 1866. According to his New York Times obituary:

Mr Bindloss was more than 30 years old before he began writing. Previously he had roamed the world, farming in Canada and working in southern climes as a cargo heaver, a planter, and at other jobs.

Broken by malaria he returned to England forty-five years ago and took up office work. But he lost his job when his health broke down and turned to writing in which he found his true vocation. He published some forty novels between the years 1902 and 1943. Many of his books had their locale in Canada.

He returned to London. In 1898, he published his first book, a non-fiction account based on his travels in Africa, called In the Niger Country. This was followed by dozens of novels.

He was a popular writer. One reviewer writes:

A new book by Harold Bindloss is always welcome. He tells a story well indeed, but one likes his books best perhaps for the environment which he knows so well how to sketch. He has written charming stories of the Canadian Northwest and one remembers with pleasure his novels “Prescott of Saskatchewan” and “Winston of the Prairie”.

The town of Bindloss, in the Canadian province of Alberta, was named after him.--Wikipedia.
