Carol Mowdy Bond grew up around family farm animals, fruit trees, massive gardens, and pet squirrels. She loved fishing, and she explored and wandered the American outdoors. These days, Bond and her camera traipse through farms and ranches, snoop around historic sites, and spy on wildlife. A historian with four published books, Bond also writes for many periodicals. She enjoys cobbling stories about all things agriculture, nature, history, and unusual topics. Bond holds a B.A. in history from Oklahoma State University, still lives in her home state of Oklahoma, and she is a member of Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Find her at www.TwoChoctawSisters.com.
