Meet the Author

William H. Thomas was born in Tioga County, N.Y., and is the author of four previous books and two plays. Thomas’ most recent book, “What Are Old People For?” draws on sources as diverse as evolutionary biology, Shakespearean sonnets and Greek philosophy to make the case that elders belong in the heart of society.

A visionary and internationally renowned expert on aging, Thomas is an Ashoka Fellow and winner of the Heinz Award for the Human Condition. In partnership with his wife Judith Meyers-Thomas, he created The Eden Alternative, now an international nonprofit, and The Green House Project, both models to revolutionize nursing home care.

After graduating from Harvard Medical School, Thomas settled in a rural corner of Chenango County and built and operated an organic, wind and solar-powered farm for 16 years. The prequel to this novel, “In the Arms of Elders” tells the fictional autobiographical story of the Thomas’ journey to the land of Kallimos and the origins of The Eden Alternative.

Thomas is a geriatrician, musician, professor and public speaker, and now resides in Ithaca, N.Y. with his wife, three sons and two daughters.

    Highly Recommended!!

    In his book, "In the Arms of Elders" William Thomas introduces us to the characters who give us answers to creating a caring, loving world for elders. In the "Tribes of Eden" Thomas takes these characters to the next level where they give us answers to creating a caring, loving world for humanity. Thomas has the gift of old fashioned story telling and he weaves a story that hooks the reader and emeshes them in the action so that they become emotionally involved in the story. From the first page the reader is hooked and it is one of those "can't put the book down until you reach the last page" stories. A compelling story, believeable characters and an ending that allows you to believe!!

    A Must Read!!

    Previously reading another work by Dr. Thomas ¿In The Arms of Elders¿, I was ecstatic for ¿Tribes of Eden¿. This book will change the way you think, it is a hard cold look at the future filled with warmth and wisdom. It leaves you feeling optimistic knowing that there will always be good in the world and you don¿t have to look far to find it. It is definitely an emotional page turner, he will take you from anger to forgiveness, from tears to laughter and best of all, he leaves you wanting more!!
