From the Author
I have a bachelors degree from the University of Wyoming in Elementary Education. I have taught 6th grade and spend as much time as possible in the mountains of Wyoming. My love for the outdoors and children led me to write, Partners in the Wilderness. Many of the events and places in the story are events that took place in my real life wilderness adventures.
