Jackson Hole Authors

Jackson Hole is home to and has inspired many amazing authors, from the more famous like Olaus Murie, Larken Rose and Ted Keresote to up and comers like Lynn Sherwood and Megan Griswold.  Something about the majestic Grand Tetons or the clean crisp air seems to bring inspiration to creative minds.

Ted Kerasote

Ted Kerasote, one of the most successful writers in Jackson, Wyoming, is the author of many books, including the national bestseller “Merle’s Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog” and “Out There: In The Wild in a Wired Age“, which won the National Outdoor Book Award.

Mr. Kerasote’s essays and photographs have appeared in Audubon, Geo, Outside, Science, The New York Times, and more than sixty other periodicals. Focusing on the interrelationship between people and nature, Ted’s writing continues to take him from the Arctic to Africa and many places in between.

Resident Author – John Daily

Retired Teton County Deputy Sheriff turned scientific investigator John Daily wrote and published the definitive book on traffic crash investigation.  This book is for the serious and bright investigator and is not a  “casual Sunday read” for most of us.  As John says, “Open to any page and start reading.  I promise you will be asleep within 10 minutes.”  This book is very “mathy” and has helped many traffic collision investigators around the word find truth.
