William Macleod Raine is one of the most beloved Western writers, who stands beside Max Brand and Zane Grey in the American pantheon. He was born in England but emigrated to a ranch in Arkansas. After college, he went to Seattle where he took up journalism and short story writing. After spending some time with the Arizona Rangers, he turned exclusively to the Western. Well, almost exclusively, for he did pen the occasional Northern too.
