David B. Williams
I write about natural history, whether it's ecological recovery at Mount St. Helens, a trip to locate salmon at Seattle, or a essay about visiting and holding first versions of On The Origin of Species. Some of my work may also be classified as science writing and/or environmental journalism. Over the last few decades, I have focused in my books, for instance, Street-Smart Naturalist, primarily on urban landscapes.
A fundamental purpose in my writing would be to inspire people to look more carefully in the natural world around them. I am hoping that my essays and articles will excite the reader to ask more questions, to go outside and explore, to delve deeper into the subject, to reevaluate everything they may have taken for granted. I have written for publications as varied as Smithsonian, Earth, Northwest Palate, and Western History.
I grew up in Seattle, moved to school at Colorado, worked as park ranger at Arches National Park and the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Park, and moved back to Seattle in 1998. I write full time, love to bike and hike, and explore urban character.
