About the Author

Ronald M. Anglin is the author of Forgotten Trails: Historical Sources of the Columbia’s Big Bend Country. He is retired from the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, where he spent thirty years in land management in the
National Wildlife Refuge System. He feels strongly that to be a good steward of an area, one must first understand its history, so that one’s mark on the land will be with love and respect, not cruelty or disdain. He and his wife,
Kathy, live in Fallon, Nevada, and have two sons who are happily married with six children between them.

Larry E. Morris is the author of The Fate of the Corps: What Became of the Lewis and Clark Explorers After the Expedition and The Perilous West:
Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail. He is a curator with the Historic Sites Division of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. He was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho, in the Snake
River country roamed by the likes of Jedediah Smith, Jim Bridger, and Kit
Carson in the 1820s and 1830s. Larry and his wife, Deborah, are the parents of four children and have six grandchildren.
