William James Stoness grew up on a farm in Eastern Ontario. After years of travelling across North America it was an easy progression into writing novels about the early opening of the West. These novels bring the beauty and ruggedness of the Southwest USA as was done in the enjoyable stories of Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour.
