Joseph Joachim (1834–1904)

Joachim, Joseph (yō-ä’kēm). A Swiss story-writer; born at Kestenholz, near Sølothurn, April 4, 1834; died in 1904. The son of a peasant, and without early advantages, he did not take to the pen until mature life; but ‘Lonny, the Homeless’ (1889), ‘The Brothers’ (1891), ‘Mother Lenen’s Revenge’ (1892), and other tales of village peasant life, have brought him renown.
