Ruth Adams Knight and Claud W Garner

Ruth Adams Knight (1898 - ?) created the soap opera, Brave Tomorrow, which ran from 1939-1940, and wrote about her experiences as a woman in radio in Stand by for the Ladies! The Distaff Side of Radio in 1939. She wrote several books about dogs, though dogs were not her only animal interest. She, with Claud W Garner, was also responsible for Word of Honor, a horse story set in post-depression Kentucky.

Finding the book: the book is findable in the USA. It was not published in the UK.
