"He must have written some millions of words, but few of them were wasted, if a rattling good story makes a reader happier and more contented for having read it." -The Times of London
"His novels ring true. They are clean, manly and sincere. There is nothing vicious about them…. To have added to the enjoyment of so vast a number of young and old, rich and poor, were a monument worthy of any man. Nathaniel Gould was born in Manchester in 1857, and died in 1919. His wide experience as a journalist in England and Australia doubtless explained his methods of rapid workmanship, while his travels in the Antipodes and elsewhere afforded him that "local colour" which is not the least pleasing characteristic of his novels. He not only wrote of outdoor life, but enjoyed it, for racing, driving and gardening were his hobbies." -E. LATON BLACKLANDS
