Author Bio: Sy Montgomery

Sy Montgomery is the author of more than fifteen nonfiction books, including the New York Times bestseller How to Be a Good Creature. She has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Zaire and swum with piranhas and pink dolphins in the Amazon. To research her books, films, and articles, she has worked in a pit swarming with 18,000 snakes in Canada and been hunted by a tiger in India. She has hiked the Altai Mountains of Mongolia’s Gobi desert in search of snow leopards and penetrated the cloud forests of Papua New Guinea to radio collar tree kangaroos. No place is too far to go to bring animals’ true stories to adults and children around the world. She writes for print as well as broadcast in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible at what she considers a critical turning point in human history.
