About the Author
Michael Zimmer, an American history enthusiast from a very early age, has done extensive research on the Old West. In addition to perusing firsthand accounts from the period, Zimmer is also a firm believer in field interpretation. He’s made it a point to master many of the skills used by our forefathers: he can start a campfire with flint and steel and he can gather, prepare, and survive on natural foods found in the wilderness. Zimmer lives in Utah with his wife, Vanessa, and two dogs.
