About the Author

Finding himself caught between hearing the adults around him talk about their places they lost in Oklahoma, and the despairing rumble of an empty stomach, Ron learned that taking action, tempered with hope and humility, was the only path to literally surviving the day. Underlying this solid, steer-wrestling man’s man, graying Van Dyke-bearded and steady gazed exterior, you might not recognize little Ronnie, the half-starved, yet hopeful, action-inclined, son of “Okies” and heir to the “Grapes of Wrath.” In a sense, the rats his dad was shooting in the kitchen of their temporary shack-like shelter, told the story of a life laced with injustice. Through this fire the gold was refined in a way, which led Ronnie to be trusting, but cautious without being fearful, and generous with the gleanings from his compassion as he teaches. Ron enjoys family, friends, fishing and reading. He and his family live in Exeter, California, a small city in the San Joaquin Valley.
