Eric Herm was raised on a cotton farm near Ackerly, Texas. Leaving the farm to pursue other interests, he graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in broadcast journalism. After working in sports television broadcasting, Herm soon chose the life of a vagabond. He lived and worked in Colorado and Alaska, writing about his own personal adventures along life’s highway. Traveling extensively through America, Mexico, Europe and Northern Africa, he witnessed various lifestyles, personalities, and cultures. Throughout his travels, these experiences helped open his mind to the endless possibilities of living life to the fullest.

As a naturalist, he continues to seek a more balanced relationship between his family’s farm and Mother Nature, and details the transformation of himself and his family farm in his new book, Son of a Farmer, Child of the Earth.
