Pseudonym of US author Bertha Muzzy Bower Sinclair (1871-1940), who specialized in Westerns like Chip of the Flying U (1906); her one novel of sf interest, The Adam Chasers (1927), places an archaeologist – an "Adam chaser" – in Nevada, where hieroglyphics are found, along with the remains of eight-foot-tall men, all suggesting that Homo sapiens originated in the American West (see Evolution; Prehistoric SF).
