Comments:
This adult novel follows a plot formula then at the height of popularity, the "Graustarkian" romance. Although Baum's story is not set in some tiny Balkan state such as George Barr McCutcheon's prototype, it details the adventures of a typical, vigorous American in decadent monarchies. The pseudonym is based upon the name of a favorite uncle.
