About the Author

Christopher Earls Brennen was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, during the Second World War. He grew up in the beautiful drumlin-rolling countryside around Magherafelt where he first acquired a love of nature that stayed with him throughout his life. Educated in Magherafelt and at Oxford University, he emigrated to California in 1969 and has lived and worked in the San Gabriel Valley for over thirty years. Many of those weekends were spent exploring the nooks and crannies of the San Gabriel mountains which he has written about in Adventure Hikes and Canyoneering in the San Gabriels. Further afield he describes some of the great adventures of the American Southwest in Adventure Hikes and Canyoneering in the Southwest. In this book he tells of some of the adventures he has experienced and some of the people he has met in other parts of the world.
