From his solar- and wind-powered studio in the Colorado Rockies, Rex A. Ewing has penned a number of best-selling books on renewable energy, including Power With Nature; HYDROGEN - Hot Stuff, Cool Science; and Got Sun? Go Solar. For aspiring log home owners who want to incorporate solar energy into their dream home, he teamed up with his wife to produce Crafting Log Homes Solar Style: An Inspiring Guide to Self-Sufficiency. His magazine articles can be found in log home and sustainable living magazines.
Before moving to the mountains to handcraft a log home and concentrate on his writing, Ewing raised grass hay and high-strung Thoroughbred race horses in the Platte River valley. Whenever his employees were persistent enough to corral him behind a desk, he served as CEO of a well-respected equine nutrition firm, where he formulated and marketed a successful line of equine supplements worldwide. In 1997 he wrote a best-selling book on horse nutrition: Beyond the Hay Days: Refreshingly Simple Horse Nutrition; the expanded 2nd edition was released in 2004.
When he's not writing, he and his wife LaVonne can be found trekking through the backcountry, canoeing with their dogs, or enjoying the 50-mile view from their deck.
