It is actually a fictionalization of the Chris Evans and ranchers vs. the railroads story.] [Miller is merely mentioned on page 29 as one of Mrs. Cedarquist’s discoveries ... “The widow of India, in the costume of her caste, described the social life of her people at home. The bearded poet, perspiring in furs and boots of reindeer skin, declaimed verses of his own composition about the wild life of the Alaskan mining camps.” whereas Norris’s protagonist poet “Presley” and his Socialistic poem The Toilers is more likely modeled after Edwin Markham’s The Man with the Hoe.] [See also 1988 Frank Norris Studies.] [The story of the character “Vanamee” and his lost love “Angèle” have something in common with The Tale of the Tall Alcalde and other poems by Miller.] [MGK]

“Mrs. Maud Miller McCormick, known to the public as Miss Maud Miller, died
yesterday at Oakland, California. She was an actress and poet, and the daughter of Joaquin Miller, the ‘Poet of the Sierras.’ Mrs. McCormick was born in a lighthouse at Cape Blanco, on the coast of Oregon. She received her education in the Convent of Loretto, Ontario, Canada. After her mother’s death she went to Paris and at the age of sixteen began her career as an actress. She joined one of Augustin Daly’s traveling companies managed by Arthur Rehan. Then she met Loudon McCormick, an actor, and married him. She soon separated from her husband, and went starring through Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and Texas.”
