Robert Michael Pyle

ROBERT MICHAEL PYLE grew up and learned his butterflies in Colorado, where he fell in love with the Magdalena Alpine and its high-country habitat, the setting of his novel Magdalena Mountain. He took his Ph.D. in butterfly ecology at Yale University, and worked as a conservation biologist in Papua New Guinea, Oregon, and Cambridge, England. His twenty-five books include Wintergreen, Where Bigfoot Walks, and Sky Time in Gray’s River. He lives in rural southwest Washington and still studies butterflies.
