Vincent Schilling's St. Regis Mohawk ancestry and his experience as a long-distance runner have been instrumental in his chronicling the lives of First Nation athletes. First-hand experience with his subject matter made it possible for Vincent to secure personal interviews with most of the sports figures featured in this book.

Bruce Swanson's thirty years of teaching history has often focused on the culture of First Nations. His practice of telling stories to his own four children laid the groundwork for Gray Wolf's Search. He makes his home in the Puget Sound region of Washington State.
