Susan Fox Rogers is the author of My Reach: A Hudson River Memoir (Cornell University Press). In this work she explores the Hudson River from the perspective of her kayak, and weaves in the natural and built history of this region, as well as the story of her family. This book grew out of the EUS course she teaches “Reading and Writing the Hudson.” All of her writing has to do with place, and the natural world. She is the editor of twelve book anthologies including Solo: On Her Own Adventure (Seal Press), Going Alone: Women’s Adventures in the Wild (Seal Press), and Alaska Passages: 20 Voices from Above the 54th Parallel (Sasquatch Books). She compiled Antarctica: Life on the Ice (Traveler’s Tales) while on a National Science Foundation grant for writers in Antarctica. She has taught at Bard College since 2001, teaching First Year Seminar, a range of creative nonfiction workshops, and a nature writing class.
