He was known for his books in the Western fiction genre and especially for his fiction and non-fiction works on the topic of railroads. His western novel Whispering Smith - the title character of which was modeled on real-life Union Pacific Railroad detectives Timothy Keliher and Joe Lefors (though the name of the titular hero was apparently derived from another UPRR policeman, James L. "Whispering" Smith) - was made into a movie on eight separate occasions, four silent films in 1916, 1917, 1926, and 1927, with later versions in 1930, 1935, 1948 and 1952. In 1961, NBC aired twenty episodes of the television series Whispering Smith, starring Audie Murphy, a film star and World War II hero in the title role, and Guy Mitchell as detective George Romack.

The Daughter of a Magnate (1903)
"An American story through and through. It has the American atmosphere, the American vitality, the American push. It deals with that great American institution, the rail way, not only with technical expertness, but in the form of a warm and pulsating human romance. The hero and heroine are typical American characters, and their love story has peculiar force and beauty." -- Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

The Mountain Divide (1912)
Spirited tale in which a 17 year old telegraph operator has all manner of adventures at "the end of the track" while serving a party of surveyors engaged in laying out the Union Pacific Railway over the crest of the Rockies.

Whispering Smith (1906)
Whispering Smith is just a plain story. It is a book of incident instead of introspection. When you read it you don't give a hang about soul struggles. What you wish to know is, is Smith going to get the drop on Du Sang in that fight to the death in the Williams Cache, or is he going to cash in before the bullets of that ruffian?
