About the Author:

A lifelong pursuit of fishing and big game hunting coupled with an intense interest in the Indians and Eskimos of North America made the subject matter of The Providers a natural topic for Dr. Irwin. Dr. Irwin has a B.A. degree in zoology from Indiana University and is a graduate of Indiana University Medical School. He practiced family medicine in his hometown of Roachdale, Indiana, for eleven years. A prolific freelance writer of outdoor material, Dr. Irwin has been publishing in Guns, Fur-Fish-Game, Safari, Sports Afield, and other sporting journals. In addition to hunting, fishing, and collecting Indian artifacts and sporting memorabilia, Dr. Irwin enjoys racing stock cars on dirt tracks. Dr. Irwin's wife Jan is an avid outdoors-woman and accompanies him on his extensive travels throughout North America. Currently they reside on Flathead Lake near Polson, Montana.
