Scott Graham is the author of the acclaimed National Park Mystery Series, featuring amateur-sleuth archaeologist Chuck Bender. The series is published by Torrey House Press.
In addition to the National Park Mystery Series, Graham is the author of five nonfiction books, including Extreme Kids, winner of the National Outdoor Book Award.
Graham is an avid outdoorsman and amateur archaeologist who enjoys backpacking, hunting, rock climbing, skiing, and mountaineering. He lives with his wife, an emergency physician, and their two sons in Durango, Colorado. He has made a living as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, radio disk jockey, and coal-shoveling fireman on the steam-powered Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
Graham has explored the national parks of the American West all his life. He has backpacked deep into the farthest reaches of the Grand Canyon, where Canyon Sacrifice is set. He twice has rowed his own eighteen-foot raft down the canyon’s notorious Colorado River rapids. Graham has hiked and climbed extensively in Rocky Mountain National Park, the setting for Mountain Rampage, including an all-night climb of 14,259-foot Longs Peak beneath a full moon, summiting at dawn.
