More About the Author

After publishing and editing the weekly newspaper in Nederland, Colorado, for 27 years, Kay Turnbaugh began writing books. Her first book, a biography of one of Nederland's most notorious citizens, Goldie Griffith, was published in 2009. It follows the life of the spunky cowgirl, who didn't even know how to ride when she got her first job as a bronco buster. She rode with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, and also worked as a stunt rider and actress in some of the first "flickers," the wildly popular Western movies. Turnbaugh's second book is a history of Nederland in photographs, some of which have not previously been published. Living in the Rocky Mountains alongside millions of mountain pine beetles led to her third book for children ages 8 to 12. It includes illustrations by David Brooks and lots of up-close and personal photos of the amazing mountain pine beetle.

Is written so the average person can understand the cycle of the pine beetle. Makes me understand why the FWP did not take action. It is a natural cycle.
