Writers on the Range

Steve grew up with a well-nourished sense of wonder. After a liberal arts education at Colorado College, he worked as a park ranger in Colorado and Utah, earned a master’s degree in ecology at the University of Arizona, and served as director of the Museum of Northern Arizona Press. For five years he lived near San Ildefonso Pueblo in northern New Mexico, the home base for his projects in Southwest Indian Country. He has worked as a freelance writer and photographer since 1981. A 35th-anniversary update of his book, The Sagebrush Ocean: A Natural History of the Great Basin, will be published next year.
