None of this (the books and the website – Did I have to spell it out?) could have been accomplished without the following people:
Maria Elena Miles, a guest writer.
Tonton Jim, a very silly fellow
Ed Roxburgh, an artist and a very good friend from the old neighborhood
Linnea Dayton, a publisher, an editor, an author of several books, and a new but now a very good friend
Chris Miles, an artist and my cousin
Terror Bird, or Phorsusrhacid. Nothing to do with Vital People, but I love just the thought of this 2.5 mya critter. If A.H. had used these birdies instead of wrens and robins,Tippi would’ve been nothing more than a tasty morsel and “The Birds” would’ve been a very short movie indeed.
