I’ve always been a maverick thinker and doer, never satisfied with life’s limits as I’ve perceived them to be in the mainstream. For example, after leaving the U.S. Army in early 1970 with an honorable discharge, I joined other veterans in the antiwar movement in protest of the corporate “war for profits” in Vietnam and the average American’s unwitting complicity. “No business as usual” was our mantra, and on many fronts the burgeoning protest movement confronted every institution across the country. As mounting numbers of dead and wounded were returned home, the entire nation began questioning and then demanding an end to the war. In 1975 President Nixon felt the hand of the movement and shut it down — the greatest military blunder in the history of the U.S. After that, we all went own separate ways.
My calling became “nature” and what we can learn as a species from our natural world, past and present. And this is what my books are about. Come back often as my library will continue to grow.
