Thirty years of three-day trips--solo, with a few friends, or a crowd of Boy Scouts--has helped Don Jacobson hone his outdoor cooking skills. An avid trekker, Jacobson continues to seek ways to enhance the outdoor experience, whether he's fishing, hiking, or canoeing. His fascination with spelunking has taken him into "the great indoors." With Lee Stral, he's written about the caving experience in Caves and Caving, published in 1986. When he's not outdoors, Jacobson is president of an advertising agency specializing in business communication. He lives with his wife and two children in suburban Chicago.
