About Author

Owen Wister

American author and historian Owen Wister, who lived from July 14, 1860, to July 21, 1938, is regarded as the "father" of Western fiction. His work on The Virginian and a biography of Ulysses S. Grant are most renowned. On July 14, 1860, Owen Wister was born in Germantown, a section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the northwest. His father, affluent surgeon Owen Jones Wister, was raised in Grumblethorpe in Germantown. With the publication of The New Swiss Family Robinson, a spoof of the 1812 book The Swiss Family Robinson, Wister launched his literary career. It earned such positive reviews that Mark Twain wrote Wister a letter admiring it. Wister was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of The Franklin Inn Club, a member of numerous literary organizations, and a member of the Harvard University Board of Overseers. Wister wed Mary Channing, his second cousin, in 1898. The couple have six kids together. Mary passed away in 1913 while giving birth.
