Stan Huncilman started mountaineering over forty years ago when he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador. Since then he has worn many hats; parade float maker, farmer, fire investigator and sculptor. He has always used his hands to earn a living and express himself. That changed when a friend suggested that he use his sculptures to create and illustrate a story. He took to writing like cats to cream or maybe it’s just that by writing an aging sculptor needn’t struggle so much with gravity. He lives in Northern California and still enjoys peak bagging.
