Miller, Joaquin

(1837-1913)
   Born Cincinnatus Heine Miller in Liberty, Indiana, the poet, journalist, and playwright spent his formative years in the gold mining camps and among the Native Americans of the Pacific coast. His poetry earned him the epithets "poet of the Sierras" and "the Byron of the Rockies." He wrote the story upon which the popular western drama The Danites (1882) was based. Although the dramatization was long credited to Miller, it was ultimately found to have been the work of a hired writer.
