Born and raised on
a cotton farm in small-town Missouri, Jerry Lemonds put himself through
college and earned two graduate degrees . . .
before spending the next
35 years running a series of federal and state health and workers' compensation agencies. Working in more recent years as a successful
management consultant and as a guide in the national "Volunteers In
Parks" program, the adventure-loving Lemonds frequently wanders the
country in his RV, and has so far visited 16 National Parks.
