In 1908, Neihardt married Mona Martinsen, a sculptor who had trained with Rodin in Paris. She  came to know Neihardt through his published poetry, and they conducted their courtship by mail,  marrying the day after they met in person. They were married for 50 years, until Mona died in 1958,  and had four children. In these early years, Neihardt published three more volumes of poetry:  Bundle of Myrrh  (1907),  Man-Song  (1909), and  The Stranger at the Gate  (1912). Some of the poems  in these volumes were collected as  The Quest  and published in 1916. He also wrote numerous short  stories, some of which were collected in  The Lonesome Trail  (1907), two novels —  The Dawn- Builder  (1911) and  Life's Lure  (1914) — and four closet dramas (plays intended to be read rather than  performed), two of which were later published as  Two Mothers
