Christina Nealson is author of four books and the photographer for four others. She is a regular
contributor to “High Country News.” The self-proclaimed geo-gypsy and photojournalist has
followed assignments to Africa, Central America and across the back roads of the U.S. West,
Canada and Mexico. She teaches, lectures and blogs about the wild as she travels solo with Teak the
chocolate lab and Hobo, an orange tabby cat who climbed onto the undercarriage of her truck in
the British Columbia backwoods. Ultimately, she will tell you that wildness begins within.
