About the Author

Frederick Philip Grove was a Canadian author and translator best known for his fictional works exploring the Canadian west. Born in Germany as Felix Paul Greve, Grove emigrated to Canada as an adult following his imprisonment for fraud in 1903 and a self-imposed exile from Germany from 1904-1906. Settling in Manitoba, Grove formally changed his name and undertook a series of teaching positions in rural areas before devoting himself to writing full time starting in the early 1920s. Among Grove’s most memorable works are Fruits of the Earth, Settlers of the Marsh, and A Search for America. Grove died in Ontario in 1948 after suffering a stroke in 1946.
