An intimate portrait of their life together, told by his widow, who supplements her knowledge of that period with the story of his early boyhood, work, travels, and original circus appearances in South Africa. Their meeting and the long distance courtship, marriage, his growing popularity through vaudeville, revues, pictures. How his writing started -- the people they knew- horses- travel- the ranch. His likes and dislikes, mannerisms, generosity, honesty. A warm-hearted portrait.
