About the Author:

Mary Ames set off for a life of adventure when she was 17. She hitchhiked and rode freight trains throughout the U.S. Along the way, she picked vegetables, worked as a waitress, tended bar, trapped, hunted, fished, planted trees, served as a physical therapy aide, taught children to swim, and learned to fly. All this sharpened her sense of humor. Then she returned to college for a degree in journalism and now lives in Fairbanks, Alaska.
