H. L. Davis

H.L. DAVIS was a truly original Northwest voice. Born in southern Oregon’s Umpqua Valley in 1894, Davis grew up in Antelope and The Dalles. He began his writing career as a poet, receiving the prestigious Levinson Prize at age twenty-five. With the encouragement of H. L. Mencken—who called Honey in the Horn the best first novel ever published in America—he turned to fiction, publishing five popular novels and many short stories and essays in the course of his career.
