Stanley Portal Hyatt (1877-1914) was an English explorer, hunter, and writer. Stanley went to Africa to seek his fortune during the 1890's. He was a great traveller, opening up trade routes right across Africa. In his written works, Stanley describes his life and experiences in Australia, Rhodesia and the Philippines. He wrote fluently and skilfully about the life on "The Road." He wrote about his fellow-riders, and of his animals. Stanley had a bitter contempt for commercially inspired progress, vehemently defending the "underdog" whenever he could and was a savage critic of the establishment. He had a very hard struggle to make a success with his first novel, Marcus Hay (1907), but soon following this he wrote the Little Brown Brother (1908) dealing with the Philippines, which made him well known in American literary circles. Other notable titles include: The Marriage of Hilary Carden (1909), Biffel: A Trek Ox (1909), The Northward Trek (1909), Off the Main Track and The Law of the Bolo (1910). He also wrote a lot of short stories for the Penny Dreadful story magazines of the time.
