Jacob Calvin Cooper was the author of an earlier Indian novel of Oregon entitled The Yamhills: An Indian Romance (1903).

Jacob Calvin Cooper (1845-1937) was an Oregon pioneer, a Civil War veteran who had served with Company C of the 14th Missouri State Militia Cavalry. He and his wife Melzena were longtime residents of McMinnville, Oregon, having lived there for fifty years. The town of Zena, Oregon (now a ghost town) is named after Melzena and her sister/sister-in-law Arvazena Cooper.

The flyleaf appears to be signed by the author and additionally inscribed by Mrs. J. C. Cooper Boaklinder(?) to their neighbors in McMinnville, Nora and Charles Clinton Jacobs and their daughter Aleen.
