About the Author
Alan Kesselheim dries his food in Bozeman, Montana, where he lives with his wife and three children. He is the author of five books, including "Water and Sky: Reflections of a Northern Year" and "Going Inside," and has published hundreds of magazine articles.
Thomas Lee was a gas station attendant, a janitor, a pizza deliveryman, a bank teller, a bartender, a waiter, a cheesy portrait photographer, a film lab technician and an obnoxious twit cajoling skiers to pose for portraits before beginning a career as a photojournalist in 1990. He has authored two coffee-table books of photography, Yellowstone View and Historic Homes of Bozeman, and was the founding Chief Photographer for critically-acclaimed Montana Quarterly magazine, where many of the photographs in this book were first published. He now operates a successful commercial photography business and lives happily with his wife and daughter in Bozeman.
