Biografía del autor:

Dean Metcalf is a US Marine Corps veteran who served four years: in Vietnam, Okinawa, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, South China Sea, and the Gulf of Tonkin. After leaving the service with an Honorable Discharge, he studied at Colorado College, majoring in Philosophy and Political Science. He graduated Cum Laude in 1969, studied Advanced Russian Language that summer in Leningrad, and in the Fall entered University of California at Santa Cruz in the History of Consciousness Program, pursuing a Ph.D. In the Spring of 1971, a post-combat nightmare (Dream: A6 and Wolves, RATTLESNAKE DREAMS, p. 311) blasted him out of graduate school and onto the road. He drifted to the Oregon coast, working as a deck hand on albacore boats, then returned to grad school and was advanced to Doctoral Candidacy in June, 1972, then quit academia again. Worked 30 years as journeyman carpenter and general building contractor. Trained in martial arts about 22 years, and founded Wallowa County (Oregon) Tae Kwon Do Academy. He has also worked as a wildland firefighter in Oregon, 2001-'02. Between jobs, for the last 19 years, he has been writing RATTLESNAKE DREAMS, his memoir of service in Vietnam, and of journalism in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Leningrad, Moscow, Baku, Kiev, Prague... always trying to understand why we go to war. This book is the result of that experience, and that study. It was written in the hope of keeping at least one, or a few, of the young ones alive.
