About the Author

Doug Cline grew up in Eastern Washington, the son of a school teacher. His family spent most of their summers hiking and camping. Cline learned a true love of nature and the skills to enjoy himself. Hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting were fun activities! Living in his rural town, outdoor activities were popular. His enjoyment of the wilderness taught him that it should be available to all, not locked away like some environmentalists would prefer. Nature is calming and there for all.
