Metta V. Victor's, Alice Wilde: The Raftsman's Daughter, was one of a number of women's books in the dime-novel genre that told a love story against the background of the romantic Wild West. First issued in 1860, this is the story of rich, cultivated Philip More, who loses his fortune--and thus his girl--in New York City and heads west to find himself and seek his fortune anew. There, he meets the charming, but unrefined, daughter of the man who runs the mill where he finds employment--the appropriately named Alice Wilde. What happens to bring the two together over the considerable obstacles that separate them makes for a timeless story.

She was born in Erie, Pennsylvania on March 2, 1831. Her first story, "The Silver Lute" was published in the local newspaper when she was just thirteen years old, and by the time she was fifteen, she had penned more than ten romance stories.
