EAF Author: Edward Eggleston (1837-1902)
Edward Eggleston, born in Indiana, became a Methodist preacher in 1856. His religious vocation, however, often took a back seat to his journalistic and literary endeavors. Eggleston served as editor of both the New York Independent and Hearth and Home. As a writer, he was particularly adept at portraying Indiana life in pioneer times. Many of his stories originally appeared serially in periodicals.
