Meet the Author

As a graduate of journalism and geology Montana Hodges found her niche writing outdoor books for Falcon Guides. Love of nature and inspiration to educate has led her into a career of outdoor writing, hoping to encourage people to get outside and explore earth's natural wonders. Montana has worked as a print, internet, and magazine journalist, backcountry guide, outdoor photographer, geographic photographer, and outdoor guide author. Adventures into the wilds have taken her from digging dinosaur bones in the badlands of Montana, to as far south as opal mining in the deserts of Australia, and as far north as bush plane aerial photography for United State Geologic Survey in Alaska. Through a lifetime of camping, hiking, and rockhounding, Montana has been attracted to nature and vastness, suitably leading her to work in Alaska. She has found herself on the other side of the articles with stories of her adventures and work being published in The Sacramento Bee, Rock 'n Gem Magazine, and the State Hornet Alumni Magazine. Her nature photography has been featured in several art shows and galleries. With any chance she gets she is in the great outdoors working with geology or journalism. During the summers she spends several months in the field, camping and exploring Alaska. She is also an active member of the Chugach Gem and Mineral Society, Mountaineering Society of Alaska, Sierra Club, Society of Environmental Journalists, Outdoor Writers Association of America and a speaker for Promoting Environmental Awareness in Kids. Montana travels between her current base in Anchorage, Alaska, to wherever the adventures may take her. She has spent the last few years working across Alaska, exploring each inch of Alaskan highway from Kodiak Island to the Arctic Ocean, always camping her way across a state two-and-a-half times the size of Texas.
