Though a Texas native, Dorothy Garlock now makes her home in Clear Lake, Iowa. At the age of forty-nine, she gave up a career as a journalist to engage in writing full-time. She is known in romance fiction circles as the "undisputed grand mistress of the frontier novel." (Taken from her home page http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/8078/garlock.html, however this page no longer exsists). She has written more than thirty-eight books.

This collection contains unpublished material by Garlock, as well as foreign editions of her works.
