About the Author
Jonathan Waterman is a photographer, the author of nine books, and an accidental filmmaker. His award-winning work often explores the North, and he recently earned a Literary Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He and his family live outside Carbondale, Colorado.

Native Coloradan Peter McBride has always been passionate about flying, particularly low and slow. That aerial bug helped lure him into a self-taught photography career that has taken him on assignment to over 60 countries for National Geographic, Smithsonian, and Outside magazines. His photography, writing, and video work have earned him accolades internationally, and in 2007 he was awarded a Knight Fellowship

for professional journalists at Stanford University. When not on assignment, Peter can be found on his

family's ranch cutting hay or "chasing water" (irrigating), or around his home in nearby Basalt, Colorado,

where he serves as a town councilman.
