About the Author

James Cloyd Bowman (1880-1961) was born in Ohio. After completing his graduate studies at Harvard, he began a career teaching English at Iowa State College and eventually became the head of the English Department at Northern State Teacher's College in Michigan (now Northern Michigan University). He wrote several works of criticism and served as editor of Contemporary American Criticism, published by Henry Holt in 1926. Among his many award-winning books for children are The Adventures of Paul Bunyan, John Henry, and Tales from a Finnish Tupa. At the time of his death, he was working on the stories of Johnny Appleseed.
