Lyman Frank Baum (1856-1919) was an American author widely known for his children’s books. Baum was born Chittenango, New-York into a devout Methodiste family He had German, Scots-Irish, and English ancestry, and was the seventh of nine children of Cynthia Ann and Benjamin Ward Baum, only five of whom survived into adulthood. "Lyman" is the name of his father's brother, but he always disliked it and preferred his middle name "Frank". The Emerald City of Oz is the sixth of L. Frank Baum's fourteen Land of Oz books. At the beginning of this story, it is made quite clear that Dorothy Gale is in the habit of freely speaking of her many adventures in the Land of Oz to her only living relatives, her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. Neither of them believes a word of her stories, but consider her a dreamer, as her dead mother had been.
