Bruce Brown is…

BRUCE BROWN is an independent creative force who has made important original contributions in the fields of marine biology and deep ecology, American and world history, as well as journalism and the Web.

He has done investigative reporting for the New York Times National Desk (the Karen Silkwood story) and foreign correspondence for Atlantic Monthly (baseball in Cuba), book reviews for the Washington Post, and he also wrote all the scripts for the first incarnation of one of the most popular series in the history of PBS-TV, the now-reprised, The Miracle Planet.

He is the author of more than 20 books, a successful entrepreneur and CEO, a noted athlete in three dramatically different sports, the holder of an extreme sport world record for half a decade, and a ground breaking digital artist, cartographer, and graphic designer. He is also an electric bassist who loves to play jazz, mostly under the name, Dr. Dum d’Dum.

He calls astonisher.com, which he created over two decades ago, “a sort of intellectual/literary/artistic/athletic lint trap that has collected some of the diverse creative work I have done over the last 50 years.”

  1. Finally stopped by your web site. Pretty impressive. I’m not worthy. (Smile). Do like you said before you do a little bit of everything. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough someday to collaborate with you on something different for us both. Anyway, once again, impressive

  2. Regarding Remains of Soldiers killed at the Battle of the Little Big Horn.
    In 1974 I visited the Buffalo Bill Museum Complex in Cody, Wyoming. In one of the interior
    rooms, where one of Cody’s fringed Wild West Show suits is exhibited was an enclosed
    case filled with rare artifacts.
    One of these items was a necklace made from the finger bones of US Soldiers killed by the
    various Indians on June 25th, 1876.
    In September of 2002, my family and I visited again and I had intended to show them this artifact
    but could not find it in the case. I contacted one of the docents and she explained that it had been
    removed. Various native peoples had determined that it was too disturbing for the general public to
    see and so no one is generally given permission to see this item.
    But this is all part of this history.
