Biographical Note

Rodello Hunter was born March 23, 1920 in Provo, Utah. One of the daughters in a large family, her early life formed the basis of her book: "House of Many Rooms," where she describes growing up in an LDS home.

In 1959 she met and married Frank James Calkins, the editor of a magazine she was at the time working on. He was an avid outdoorsman, and their experiences in the Jackson Hole area of Wyoming gave rise to the book: "Wyoming Wife."

Content Description
