Sherry Alexander

Biography

Sherry Alexander is admittedly obsessed with American and Native American history, and she is quick to point out that she comes by it honestly. Her ancestors were 1800 pioneers who traveled West in hopes of making a new life, and she was fascinated by the stories of their lives on the frontier. “As a kid, I wanted to be a pioneer, so reading books was the last thing on my mind. Instead, my siblings and I explored the forests of Scappoose, Oregon, and dreamed of foraging new trails to unknown lands.” A writer, author, blogger, and child advocate who writes both fiction and non-fiction, her books include The Great Camel Experiment of the Old West, Oliver's Hunger Dragon, and Search for the Red Ghost. When she’s not thinking or writing about historical adventures, she is homeschooling her 11 year-old granddaughter, listening to Hawaiian slack guitar, watching a John Wayne western, or exploring the forest behind her home with her husband of 47 years.

In the mid-nineteenth century, the southwest was inhospitable to horses and mules. The Army needed a mount that could go without water for days, eat only the available vegetation, and carry heavy loads. There was only one animal that could meet their demands. The Great Camel Experiment of the Old West is the true story of that noble beast's journey from the Middle East to the United States.
