About the Author
In the late 1960s Douglas Anderson hitchhiked around the world with a backpack; the journey included six months in India and Nepal. One of his New-York-published books, The One Real Poem Is Life (Braziller, 1974), includes an account of that journey, along with other outrageous exploits he experienced during the 1960s (The Coffeehouse, The Commune, etc.). A second NY book (My Sister Looks Like a Pear, Hart, 1973) details his efforts to inspire thousands of school children across America to write their own original stories, poetry and songs, and includes hundreds of pieces of fresh student writing. After he wrote The Planet of Waters, he worked on it for seven years before first publishing it as editor and principal writer for Bread & Butter Press/Denver.
