Bill Richards and Ashley Steel have traveled to over forty countries and have two wonderful and well-traveled daughters. As a family, they have lived in or visited the United States, Canada, Asia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and the United Kingdom. The idea for this book was hatched when they over-prepared for a trip to Japan and discovered that their preparations made the trip particularly successful. Bill Richards is an accomplished forest ecologist, specializing in restoring forest habitat for rare wildlife species. His work has appeared in the Natural Areas Journal, Conservation Biology, and Forest Ecology and Management. Bill grew up on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border and accompanied his parents to over a dozen countries before graduating from high school. He has also lived and worked in Australia, Thailand, and Austria, and has traveled extensively in Central America, Eastern and Western Europe, and West, Southeast, and East Asia. E. Ashley Steel, PhD, is a research scientist specializing in river ecology and statistics. She spent many summers teaching science to kids at a University of Washington academic summer program, leading students on enriching adventures with activity pages and worksheets. She cofounded the Science Inquiry and Research Council (SIRC), a nonprofit organization focused on improving science education. Her published curriculum, The Truth About Science, has sold over 5,000 copies. Her academic travel bug was ignited in college during a semester in Denmark, and she has since been honored with a Luce Fellowship for a year in southern Thailand, and a Fulbright Fellowship to live and work in Austria.
