About the Author:

KRIISTI ANDERSON spent the first half of her life NOT hiking and camping, until she took the Wilderness Basics Course in 1996. After that, she was hooked! and has spent the last seven years hiking and leading camps for WBC and the Sierra Club and personal hikes and trips. At age 38, she is now in training to climb San Gorgonio and wants to eventually climb Mount Whitney, oh, and spend the rest of her days hiking and camping. Anderson is the editorial coordinator for Academic Press.
