About the Author(s)

Neil Jennings is an ardent hiker, photographer, and outdoorsman who loves “getting down in the dirt” pursuing his keen interest in wildflowers. For 22 years he was a co-owner of a fly-fishing retail store in Calgary, and he has fly-fished extensively, in both fresh and saltwater, for decades. His angling pursuits usually lead him to wildflower investigations in a variety of venues. He taught fly-fishing-related courses in Calgary for over 20 years, and his photographs and writings on the subject have appeared in a number of outdoor magazines. Neil has previously written several volumes published by Rocky Mountain Books dealing with wildflowers in western Canada, fly fishing, and hiking venues in southern Alberta. Neil lives in Calgary, Alberta, with Linda, his wife of over 40 years. They spend a lot of time outdoors together chasing fish, flowers, and, as often as possible, grandchildren.
