Helen Foster James, author of S is for S’Mores: A Camping Alphabet, started researching for this book when she was just four- years old—when she went on her first camping trip! Since that time, she has been on more than one hundred camping trips, including backpacking down (and up!) the Grand Canyon, hiking to the top of Sierra Mountain passes, and canoeing down the Colorado River. She even met her husband on a camping trip to Catalina Island.
She is also the author of E is for Enchantment: A New Mexico Alphabet (Sleeping Bear Press), for which she received a WILLA Literary Finalist award by Women Writing the West. For more information, please visit her website at helenfosterjames.com.
