He has taught microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, and botany for over thirty years. In 2004, the students of Amarillo College selected Dr. Bauman as the recipient of the John F.

When he is not writing books, he enjoys spending time with his family: gardening, hiking, camping, rock climbing, backpacking, cycling, skiing, and reading by a crackling fire in the winter and in a gently swaying hammock in the summer.
