Altsheler, Joseph A: The Keepers of the Trail. V1. 12 July 2009
Altsheler was born in Three Springs, Kentucky to Joseph and Louise Altsheler. In 1885, he took a job at the Louisville Courier-Journal as a reporter and later, an editor. He started working for the New York World in 1892, first as the paper's Hawaiian correspondent and then as the editor of the World's tri-weekly magazine. Due to a lack of suitable stories, he began writing children's stories for the magazine.
Altsheler married Sarah Boles on May 30, 1888, and had one son. He and his family were in Germany when World War I began. The difficult journey home took a huge toll on Altsheler's health and he was never the same. He died in New York City in 1919.
“The Keepers of The Trail” deals with an episode, hitherto unrelated, in the lives of Henry Ware, Paul Cotter, Shif’less Sol Hyde, Long Jim Hart, and Silent Tom Ross. In point of time it follows “The Forest Runners,” and, so, is the third volume of the “Young Trailer” series.
