Daniel P. Mannix

Daniel P. Mannix (1911-1997) had nearly as many adventures as an Oz character: they range from sword-swallowing in a sideshow to hunting and photographing big game in Africa. His best-known works are the 1958 book Those About to Die, which remained in continuous print for three decades, and the 1967 novel The Fox and the Hound which in 1981 was adapted into an animated film by Walt Disney Productions.
