    In recognition of his achievements in literature, Hamlin Garland (1860-1940) received four honorary doctorates & a Pulitzer Prize. This book traces the rise of this prairie farm boy with a half-formed ambition to write who then skyrocketed into international prominence before he was forty. His life is a story of ironic contradictions: the radical whose early achievement thrust him to the forefront of literary innovation but whose evolutionary aesthetic principles could not themselves adapt to changing conditions; the self-styled 'veritist' whose credo demanded that he verify every fact but whose credulity led him to spend a lifetime seeking the confirm the existence of spirits.
