Hamlin Garland (1860-1940) was an American novelist, playwright, and author. Born on September 14, 1860, and raised on farms
in Wisconsin and the Midwest, Garland was
provided early on with the practical experience of farm and mid-western life that was to become the foundation for his realistic
style of writing and unsentimental accounts of
farm life in both his fictional and non-fictional accounts.
