Richard Adams Carey grew up in Connecticut, attended Harvard, and worked various low-paying jobs before going to teach in the Yupik Eskimo villages of western Alaska. His first book, "Raven's Children," was described by Alaska Magazine as "the best book on Alaska since John McPhee's classic 'Coming Into the Country.'"

The New York Times praised "Against the Tide" as "deep ecological journalism at its best, a worthy successor to such classic portraits of American fishermen as William W. Warner's 'Beautiful Swimmers' and Peter Matthiessen's 'Men's Lives.'"

"The Philosopher Fish," said Kirkus Reviews is "a book about America in microcosm. Caviar, as it turns out, is not just tasty. In Carey's hands, it's luminous."

Carey's new book, "In the Evil Day," concerns a 1997 shooting incident in Colebrook, New Hampshire. Said Booklist, "Carey's tension-filled report of a small town's terror is portrayed with surprising love, bittersweetness, and hope, resuting in a beautifully written and enthralling true crime tale."

Carey lives in Sandwich, New Hampshire, and teaches in the MFA fiction and nonfiction program of Southern New Hampshire University.
