Eric Knight was born in 1897 in Yorkshire, England, the
countryside that was the background for Lassie
Come-Home. He moved to the United States as a teenager.
After graduating from Cambridge Latin School in
Massachusetts, Mr. Knight married and settled on a farm in
Pennsylvania, where Lassie Come-Home was written and
where the collie who inspired the book is buried. Mr. Knight
was killed while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II.
