About meRetired U.S. National Park Service ranger and park superintendent. Married with two lovely daughters, one grown, one in 3rd Grade!
About my libraryI simply love books and libraries! I have been collecting books on western Americana, the US Navy in WWII, the British Army, the fur trade, Russian America, American military history, Lewis and Clark, Thomas Jefferson, and general history, science, and philosophy for about 35 years. I don't know exactly how many books I have, but roughly estimate ~5,000 cloth and paperback books.
