More About the Author
Born and raised in Colorado, Eric Peterson started traveling as a newborn child on his way back from the hospital. Numerous family road trips ensued, often with comedic effect.
Eric started writing when he was four, covering such stories as an anthropomorphic hammer fighting similarly humanoid nails and a bipedal polka-dotted gator-like creature named Erg.
He first got paid to write in his early twenties when he landed a freelance gig on a Frommer's book. That was 1995. As of 2010, Eric has written dozens of travel guides, mostly Frommer's titles, as well as his own Ramble Guides series of books: Ramble: A Field Guide to the U.S.A. (2006), Ramble Colorado (2008), Ramble California (2009), and Ramble Texas (2010).
Eric has also written for numerous magazines and newspapers during his career, including the Denver Post, Westword, the New York Daily News, United Hemispheres, Delta Sky, ColoradoBiz, Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel, and Nintendo Power.
