Francis Lynde was an American author whose novels were set in the mountains of Colorado, Nevada, and Utah, and the stories often revolved around mining or railroad engineers.

Three of Lynde’s novels were adapted for film – ‘Across the Burning Trestle’, ‘Stranded in the Arcady’, and ‘Bucking the Line’ (based on his 1915 novel ‘The Real Man’).

Alongside his novels, Lynde also published a collection of short detective stories that would be enjoyed by fans of Sherlock Holmes, entitled ‘Scientific Sprague’.
