Robin feels that the most important task of the modern-day storyteller is to teach our nation to dream again. This is what Robin's work is all about. His wild but evocative tales of hound dogs and rattlesnakes, wild men and hairy women, headless ghosts and howling wolves have kindled the imaginations of a new generation of readers and listeners. Robin's family has lived in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania for nearly 200 years. His ancestors were Scotch-Irish frontiersmen who settled the area after the Revolutionary War. As a boy, he developed a love for the woods and an ear for spoken words. Today, Robin is an internationally known author of more than a dozen award-winning books and has a busy schedule of performances, workshops and speaking engagements. He lives with his family in a stone farmhouse on a small patch of land in Montgomery County, PA. Robin is owner of Groundhog Press, a small independent publishing house that produces books and tapes celebrating the oral tradition. He has received many awards, including The Parent's Choice Award. He was named "Author of the Year" by the PA School Librarian's Association and was recently named "National Storyteller of the Year" by The Creative Arts Institute. Robin Moore
