2010 Book Festival Author
Marty Essen

Author Biography

Essen is an adventurist who authored Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents.  Essen and his wife spent three and a half years visiting some of the wildest places on all seven continents.  While working on the book he was stung by one of the world’s most venomous insects, bitten by a poisonous snake, surrounded by wolves, attacked by a hippo and had the time of his life.  Not your average travelogue, Marty Essen’s book entertains, informs, and poignantly reminds us that we all share a small planet.
