Novels by Jerry Lemonds

After completing his 2003 autobiography (Timer: An American Story), the peripatetic Jerry Lemonds would go on to write two high-octane novels about his remarkable experiences as a long-distance canoe-pilot

Jerry Lemonds JERRY

He's a hiker, a camper, and a lifelong canoeing enthusiast. He's also a nationally recognized author who's published several recent books that celebrate the joys of all three pursuits.

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.
