About the Author

Edward Sylvester Ellis was born in Geneva, Ohio, in 1840. He attended the State Normal School of New Jersey and, while he was just a boy, he began teaching. He would later become a school principal and superintendent of schools of Trenton. In 1860 he published his most successful book, Seth Jones, or the Captive of the Frontier. Its sudden and immense success caused him to abandon teaching and pursue a writing career. Edward Ellis specialized in boys' stories, inspirational biography, and history for both children and adults. He was a major author during the dime novel era of inexpensive fiction of the nineteenth century.
