Hamlin Hannibal Garland (1860-1940) was an American novelist, poet,
essayist, and short story writer. He is best known for his fiction
involving hardworking Midwestern farmers. His first success came in
1891 with Main-Travelled Roads, a collection of short stories
inspired by his days on the farm. He serialized a biography of
Ulysses S. Grant in McClure's Magazine before publishing it as a
book in 1898. The same year, he travelled to the Yukon to witness
the Klondike Gold Rush, which inspired The Trail of the Gold
Seekers (1899). In 1917, he published his autobiography, A Son of
the Middle Border. The book's success prompted a sequel, A Daughter
of the Middle Border, for which Garland won the 1922 Pulitzer Prize
for Biography. After two more volumes, Garland began a second
series of memoirs based on his diary. He devoted his remaining
years to investigating psychic phenomena, an enthusiasm he first
undertook in 1891. In his final book, The Mystery of the Buried
Crosses (1939), he tried to defend such phenomenon and prove the
legitimacy of psychic mediums.
