This book was written in 1911 by prolific American novelist Edna Ferber (1885-1968) who won the Pulitzer Prize in 1925. She first met William Allen White when they covered the 1912 Republican National Convention for the same newspaper syndicate. They became close lifelong friends. Ferber handwrote on book's front flyleaf "For Sallie Lindsay White, whom I love. Edna Ferber. (and I dare you to lend this copy around to the neighbors and lose it, as you did the first one). Chicago, Feb. 11, 1916"
