About the Author

Born in Washington, D.C. in 1947, George Constantz spent six years of his childhood in Barranquilla, Colombia, among the iguanas of the Magdalena River’s floodplain, and in Chihuahua, Mexico, where he chased roadrunners through the desert. Since receiving a BA in biology from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a PhD in zoology from Arizona State University, George has worked as a park naturalist, a teacher of biology and environmental science, a fish ecologist, researcher, and writer. George founded Cacapon Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving Appalachian rivers. Currently, he manages the Education Program at the Canaan Valley Institute. George lives with his wife, Nancy Ailes, in the Cacapon River watershed of West Virginia.
