The author James De Mille (1833-1880) was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada and educated at Acadia College, Wolfville, NS and Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. He taught and held the chair of classics at Acadia College and that of history and rhetoric at Dalhousie College in Halifax from 1865 until his death. 

He had a successful career as a prolific and popular novelist. He died in 1880, and his best known novel, "A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder," was published posthumously in 1888 

In addition to several other volumes, he wrote a series of books for boys, called The Young Dodge Club. This book is one in that series.
