Those of you who have visited this website in the past 20 years will remember it as the SYMBIOS pages. SYMBIOS is the name of our publishing and environmental consulting business, titled that because of my belief that people and things work better when they work together - in effect, symbiotically. Except for book sales and occasional publishing, I'm retired now. But you'll still find sections of this website devoted to my strongest interests and favorite pursuits. You'll find my "North Country Journal," about life at the end of the road in northern New Hampshire. [I posted some new chapters up, recently.] There's a large section on my favorite bird, the California condor. The History and Genealogy pages - the pages that always got the most readership - are still here, as are pages on politics and religion (hard to separate, these days), wildlife and conservation, public participation in government processes, and the problems of small towns in America. The "Eloquence" pages are my writing-for-fun area, a hodgepodge of whatever catches my fancy at various moments. To get to any of the main sections, click on one of the topics listed at the bottom of this page.
Of course, we still sell books. I'd be very pleased if you'd buy one or two, either SYMBIOS titles or something from my selection of used books. There are some good ones, and you'll find my prices competitive. Sales help me maintain the website without all those ugly and annoying commercials, too. But whether or not you're in a buying mood, please feel free to browse the site; I think you'll find something that will interest you.
