About the Author
Warren Troy has always been an avid outdoorsman and adventurer. As a child, his favorite activity was spending time at the family cottage in the Catskill Mountains, exploring the forest and observing wildlife: deer, bear, and birds. When his family moved to Southern California, Warren turned his interests to the desert, roaming in that environment as enthusiastically as he used to traipse through the old Eastern woods. The fulfillment of his passion for nature was when he moved to Alaska. He has had a love affair with the state ever since, enjoying hunting, fishing, and ultimately homesteading up beyond the head of Kachemak Bay for five full years with his wife, Joyce. Warren’s deep love for Alaska, and his experiences there, are the inspiration for his Alaska wilderness adventure books, and he has become known for his written work. Warren and Joyce live in a cabin in Willow, Alaska, 70 miles north of Anchorage, surrounded by spruce and birch, enjoying the flow of the seasons, living a peaceful life of Alaska adventure writing.
