Rogers explores the fascinating life and influences of America's greatest writer for children." ; Contents: Early Life Actor Playwright Oil Salesman 1856-1888 -- Frontier Storekeeper and Newspaper Editor 1888-1891 -- Becoming a Writer in Chicago 1891-1900 -- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz 1899-1900 -- Successful Author 19011903 -- Reilly Brittons Star Author 1904-1907 -- Royal Historian of Oz 1907-1910 -- A New Life in California 1909-1914 -- A Writer to the End 1914-1919 -- Baums Achievement The World He Created. ; FINE/FINE
