Zona Gale was a popular American journalist and author. Although she worked in New York City for a time, it was her small-town Wisconsin roots that inspired her most successful works. Her early, romantic novels gave way to more realistic depictions of small-town life, culminating with a Pulitzer Prize in 1921 for a dramatization of her novel, Miss Lulu Bett. She expressed her theme as, "Life is something more than that which we believe it to be."
