Mighels, Ella Sterling

(1853-1934) US author, almost all of whose work, fiction and nonfiction, deals with her native California; she was married to Philip Verrill Mighels. Her short Lost Race novel, Fairy Tale of the White Man: Told from the Gates of Sunset (1915 chap), sites the origin of the White Man in her home state, and describes a complex ancient urban civilization in glowing terms.
