Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Nevada Barr was born on March 1, 1952. She is the author of a series of mysteries involving national parks. She draws on her own experience as a National Park Service ranger to thrill readers with the majesty of nature. Anna Pigeon, the heroine of such novels as A Superior Death and Endangered Species is a rough-and-tough ranger who left the wilds of New York for the great outdoors, and is modeled after Barr. The newest book in this series, #16, is entitled Burn. Barr began writing in 1978, garnering national attention with the publication in 1993 of Track of the Cat, which won both the Agatha and Anthony awards for Best First Mystery Novel. Her novels are known for breathtaking descriptions of nature, diverse settings, and a no-nonsense heroine. She also provides frequently unflattering portrayals of the National Park Service. Her works include 13 1/2, Winterstudy, Borderline, and Burn. His title The Rope made The New York Times Best Seller List 2012. (Bowker Author Biography)
