Biography: William MacLeod Raine was born in London in 1871, but moved to the country of his novels, America, when he was just ten years old. The gambling, prospecting, hunting and drinking men of the Old West appear in his popular western adventure novels, like A Texas Ranger (1910) and Yukon Trail (1917). Raine also explored the pioneering spirit of the west in non-fiction like Famous Sheriffs and Western Outlaws (1920). Several of his novels inspired films as well.
