"The authors now live in a log house in a Douglas Fir forest next to Oregon's McKenzie River. In addition to publishing books on natural history, they are active in many forms of public service. Their connection with Bhutan began with a trek and cultural tour in 1996 and quickly expanded into public service projects ranging from assisting a desktop publishing company and serving as the Internet publishers for the Centre for Bhutan Studies, to promoting silk and wool textiles and managing the construction and installation of two-way radio transceivers for one hundred remote Himalayan villages."--BOOK JACKET.
