About this author

Richard Tupper Atwater (1892-1948) was a Chicago journalist.

He contributed to the literary and arts magazine The Chicagoan. He also taught Greek at the University of Chicago. In 1932, after watching a documentary about Richard E. Byrd's Antarctic expedition, he began writing the first part of the book but was forced to stop due to a stroke he suffered in 1934. Other books by Richard Atwater include Rickety Rhymes of Riq (published in 1925) and Doris and the Trolls (published in 1931)
