About the Author

Sylvia Linsteadt followed coyote tracks all the way back to her native Bay Area after attending Brown University, where she studied literary arts. Her books include Tatterdemalion (Unbound, forthcoming) and Wonderments of the East Bay (Heyday, 2014). Her work--both fiction and nonfiction--explores the realms of deep ecology, history, and myth. She runs two stories-by-mail projects, The Grey Fox Epistles and The Leveret Letters, and in 2014 her manuscript The Grey Fox Epistles/i> received the James D. Phelan Award from the San Francisco Foundation. Her work has been published in New California Writing 2013, The Dark Mountain Project, and News from Native California.

He has received dozens of prestigious awards among which are the Chairman's Commendation from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Fred Cody Award Lifetime Achievement from the San Francisco Bay Area Book Reviewers Association, the Helen Crocker Russell Award for Community Leadership from the San Francisco Foundation, the Carey McWilliams Award for Lifetime Achievement from the California Studies Association, an Oscar Lewis Award for Western History from the Book Club of California, a Hubert Bancroft Award from Friends of the Bancroft Library, a Cultural Freedom Award from the Lannan Foundation, and a Distinguished Service Award from the Society of Professional Journalists.
