Bacon, Josephine Daskam: In the Border Country. V1. 27 Nov 2012
Josephine Daskam Bacon (Mrs. Selden Bacon) (born: Josephine Dodge Daskam) (February 17, 1876 – July 29, 1961) was an American writer of great versatility. She is chiefly known as a writer who made the point of having female protagonists.
She wrote a series of juvenile mysteries, as well as works dealing with more serious themes. She published books of poetry, which were well received by critics; as noted by one critic, some of her poetry was set to music. She was published under the name "Josephine Daskam".
She wrote on "women's issues" and women's roles as well. She was a pioneer in the Girl Scouts movement and compiled the guidebook used by that organization
The woman who told me this, and other strange tales which I may one day try to put together, had no gift of writing, but only a pathetic regard for those who had.
