Frederick Manfred (1912–94) grew up on a farm in Iowa with six brothers, attended Calvin College in Michigan, and then hitchhiked for two years across America, which provided him with rich material for his novels. He is the author of twenty-four novels, including a five-volume series, The Buckskin Man Tales, which includes Lord Grizzly, a finalist for the 1954 National Book Award, Conquering Horse, Scarlet Plume, King of Spades, and Riders of Judgment.Review:
"This is a very fine, real, rich, bright novel. Above all it is a novel deserving the appreciative reading and warm applause of all who, like the author, value the legends of America and believe in both their perpetuation and their interpretation."—Chicago Sunday Tribune (Chicago Sunday Tribune)
"There is a ranginess, a freewheeling robustness, an engaging lustiness of style and expression here. . . . Lord Grizzly is a heady mixture of history made into first rate fiction."—New York Times (New York Times)
