All are exciting. The book is written for those persons who are looking for such encounters, those who wish to avoid them, and those persons who enjoy a good read. Join this couple as they react to surprises in the wild.

About the Author

About the Author

Steve Bickerstaff has two wonderful daughters (Betty and Lee) and three fabulous granddaughters (Jesse, Maggie, and Abby).

He is an attorney who initially was with the State of Texas as Parliamentarian of the State Senate and Assistant Attorney General. In 1981 he left the state's employ to found the private law firm of Bickerstaff, Heath and Smiley. The firm grew to 50 attorneys. Steve left the law firm over a decade ago, but it continues to prosper and to bear his name.

During much of this time, Steve was also an adjunct professor at the University of Texas Law School. Yearning to learn more about the world, he taught as a Fulbright scholar in Germany, was a Rockefeller Scholar in Residence at the Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, Italy, was part of a Carter Commission study of elections in China, and lectured at 16 different universities in Europe, the U.K. and Scandinavia. He and his wife, Charlotte Carter, have traveled and hiked extensively around the world.

Steve was also on the governing board of several non-profits, including The Trustees for Alaska, the Board of Visitors for McDonald Astronomical Observatory, and West Texas Public Radio. He remains on the National Council of the National Parks Conservation Association.

Although Steve has written extensively about legal issues, this book, There's a Bear, There's a Bear Right Behind You, is his first attempt at writing for the general public.
