Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton (1857 - 1948) was a prominent and prolific American author. Many of her novels are set in her home state of California. In addition to novels, she wrote short stories, essays, and articles for magazines and newspapers on such issues as feminism, politics, and war. She was strong-willed, independent-minded, and sometimes controversial. Black Oxen was Atherton's best seller and was made into a silent film of the same name. It is a sensational, semi-autobiographical novel about an aging woman who miraculously becomes young again after glandular therapy.
