James Solomon


ABOUT THE AUTHOR J.L. (Jim) Solomon, grew up in a single parent family, raised by his mom since he was 4 years old. Growing up in a big city like Phoenix, Arizona in the 50’s and 60’s made it kinda tough to learn all about the outdoors. There were no Wildlife Organizations back then so J.L. learned from the outdoor magazines like “Outdoor Life” and Field and Stream” that his mom subscribed him to. From these magazines he learned many outdoor skills and by the age of 20, J.L. felt pretty confident about it. It was in 1974 J.L. watched a National Geographic Special about Dr’s John and Frank Craighead up in Missoula, Montana and the Grizzly Bear research they were performing in Yellowstone Park. It was that show that had him deciding that Montana was where he should be and in 1975, he and a friend Scott Reed bought, rebuilt and painted an old 1953 Willy’s. It was a flathead six cylinder engine with a six volt system. It took them five days to get to Missoula and shortly after arriving in Missoula, J.L. was hired by the Wildlife Research Center at the University of Montana. The following year J.L. was asked to participate in a Grizzly Bear research project by Dr. John J. Craighead. It lasted for 6 weeks, all on foot so we covered 270 miles performing the ground truth data of the Satellite Maps. This is shared this to let all kids from single parent families can accomplish anything. J.L. later went on to host the number one outdoor radio show in the nation’s sixth largest market, Phoenix, Arizona. J.L. was the first in outdoor radio to broadcast a LIVE show 38 miles out to sea off the coast of Puerto, Vallarta as well an outdoor show on the FOX Arizona Sports network. J.L. has always had a fascination with werewolves and vampires since the age of six so it was no wonder when he sat down in the Salt Lake City Airport waiting to fly out to see his son in Montana and wrote the first 21 pages of, “Patinewah and the Border Guard” on a yellow pad. 19 Chapters and 267 pages later it was complete with Cherokee heroes and heroines from the “Trail of Tears”, border patrol agents and a drug cartel from South America run by, well you’ll just have to read it to find out the rest of the story.
