About this title


A native of the State of Maine, and descendant of a member of the Benedict Arnold Expedition, he has traveled the continent extensively in search of adventure and a better understanding of nature and our relationship to it. One of the youngest Eagle Scouts on record at just thirteen, conservation has always been on the agenda.

After working for years as a carpenter and living in the Alaskan bush, he returned to school to study wildlife biology in Northern California. He left after just one semester on an odyssey that took him to the frontlines of all the environmental battles of the last two decades as a seasonal fisheries biologist for several state and federal agencies including five seasons for the U.S. Forest Service.

The result of his work was the halt of clear-cut logging on the national forests and the removal of dams on rivers critical to fish recovery programs nationwide.

That effort is chronicled in "Against a Strong Current", the story of America’s unsung environmental heroes. York wrote a screenplay based on the book after spending four years as an actor in Hollywood. A member of the Screen Actors Guild he is working on a degree in Biology and Environmental Journalism.
