Gary Spina has taught English in the New York City, Washington, D.C., and Rosebud County, Montana. The Mountain Man's Field Guide to Grammar utilizes the author’s own unique classroom techniques for simplifying and clarifying complex grammar and usage rules.
“When I was a boy, I was a terrible student,” Spina says. “I was especially proficient at failing English. By some fluke of fate I grew up to become an English teacher and writer. I never forgot what it was like to sit in a classroom and suffer through dull grammar lessons. I swore I’d make my lessons fun.”
Gary Spina has ventured half way around the world and back again. Along the way, he has encountered many of the interesting characters who now people his writing. He has wandered amid adventurers in Alaska. He has lived among the Crow and Northern Cheyenne Indians in Montana, where he taught Honors English at an Indian High School. It was there, between the Powder, the Tongue, the Yellowstone, and the Big Horn Rivers, where his “Mountain Man” manuscript came together in a flesh-on-bone grammar book of western lore and modern American usage.
