Bio: In his teens, Heath hitchhiked to Alaska and lived in a cabin on the Tanana River; in his twenties, he lived in Italy and then traveled overland across the Sahara, through the jungles and over the savannas of Africa and across southern Asia; in his thirties, he sailed alone around the world in an old wooden boat; in his forties, he wrote novels; and in his fifties he bicycled the Rockies from Alaska to Mexico. He's worked on the Alaska pipeline, as an environmental lobbyist in the Alaska Legislature, and run a storied environmental organization fighting to protect Alaska's rainforests.
