About the Author

Graham Mackintosh was born in London and graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Sociology.
In 1983 he was a lecturer at a college in England, teaching social sciences and special education to unemployed teenagers. In the hope of showing his students that a shoestring expedition could be the adventure of a lifetime, Mackintosh, who described himself as the "least adventurous person in the world," set out to walk around the beautiful but dangerous coastline of Baja California.

The almost two-year, 3,000-mile trip changed his life. When he emerged from the cactus-strewn wilderness, he returned to England to write his first book, Into a Desert Place and there received the prestigious "Adventurous Traveller of the Year" award.
In 1997 he decided to walk down the rugged, mountainous interior of Baja, visiting many of the old missions along the way. Journey with a Baja Burro, his second book, was the result. It describes his arduous thousand-mile journey with a pack burro from the US border to Loreto—a trip that began exactly 300 years after the October 1697 founding of the Loreto mission, the first permanent European settlement in the "Californias."

In 2001, Graham spent four months in Baja’s Sierra San Pedro Martir with two street dogs, which became the subject of his third book — Nearer My Dog to Thee: A Summer in Baja’s Sky Island.
His fourth book, Marooned With Very Little Beer, was first published in 2008
Graham Mackintosh became a US citizen in 2004 and now lives in San Diego, California. He continues to give lectures and slide shows on his trips, and writes articles on Baja. He is married to Bonni, a nurse, who shares his love for Baja and nature.
