Connor, Ralph

Connor, Ralph
orig. Charles William Gordon

(13 sep. 1860, Indian Lands, cond. de Glengarry, Ontario, Canadá–31 oct. 1937, Winnipeg, Manitoba).

Novelista canadiense. Ordenado ministro presbiteriano en 1890, fue misionero en campamentos forestales y mineros de las montañas Rocosas canadienses; estas vivencias y los recuerdos de su infancia en Glengarry, Ontario, están presentes en sus novelas The Sky Pilot [El piloto celestial] (1899) y The Prospector [El prospector] (1904), entre otras. Sus novelas, que narran aventuras provistas de un mensaje religioso y describen los sentimientos sanos de sus personajes, lo convirtieron en el escritor canadiense más popular de principios del s. XX. Las obras más apreciadas son The Man from Glengarry [El hombre de Glengarry] (1901) y Glengarry School Days [Días de colegio en Glengarry] (1902).
