Bio: Tom Lombardo taught Middle School in a rural part of Sonoma County, a wine growing region about forty miles north of San Francisco, for six years. He wrote his own history text about the ancient world. He left teaching to become a world traveler. Lombardo began studying ancient history and anthropology at a very young age. He believes that the modern world could use the wisdom and the sense of wonder that filled the minds of our earliest ancestors--and he strongly feels that every young person should go on as many adventures as possible!
