From the Author
A number of years ago I had the unique experience of living outside, without tent or toilet, under the trees by a small stream in Northern Arizona for three months. With me were my wife, Tammy, and two of our children, the other two being old enough to see the folly in this. However, from this experience came knowledge and a desire to share what we learned.
In writing, Our Only Hope, I drew on a lifetime of personal experiences. As a young man I had been fortunate to meet, Allan J. Stover, an exceptional human being. A retired professor, naturalist, and artist, he became a mentor and friend and helped open my eyes to our natural world in more ways than I can say. Special thanks must also go to the late Erwin and Cherry Yarnell who taught at various schools on the Navajo reservation many years ago, and who allowed their young nephew to spend several summers with them, watching and learning.
Other experiences that proved helpful in writing this story include my time as photographer, first with the U.S. Navy, and later with General Dynamics/Pomona. Previous writing experience includes several articles that have appeared in a national magazine, as well as a book on real estate investment.
Now then, remembering at all times that this is a fictional tale, find a comfortable chair, pour a glass of your favorite wine, and settle back to enjoy a short trip into our future.
About the Author
Richard and his wife, Tammy, can be found on a 38 acre property in Northern California that is kept in its natural state for the benefit of all local wildlife. They live in a very modern off grid home that Ann Margret, their cat, is absolutely certain they built for her. She also claims the middle of the bed and all too often, the computer keyboard.
