Meet the Author

George B. Robinson lives in Bozeman, Montana with his wife Kae and their "kids"-miniature schnauzers Willow and Winston. Prior to his retirement in 1991, George served for ten years as Chief of Interpretation at Yellowstone National Park. During his 32-year National Park Service career, George served in many areas, including Everglades National Park, Florida, and Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota. He was one of the first professional interpretive planners stationed at the Harpers Ferry Center in West Virginia. In that capacity George was involved in developing interpretive plans for several new and existing units of the National Park System, among them, Crater Lake, Mammoth Caves, and North Cascades national parks, Gulf Islands National Seashore, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Early in his career, George worked in Glacier, Sequoia-Kings Canyon, and Lassen Volcanic national parks. Since his retirement, George has served as a private consultant and freelance writer. Appropriately, he calls his one person firm "The Wild Side."
