Larry E. Morris

Larry E. Morris is an independent writer and historian. Born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho, he has been very interested in the 1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake since he visited the site with his parents and brother and sister in the early 1960s. He was particularly moved by the plaque honoring the twenty-eight people who perished in the disaster, and his book tells the human drama of the campers caught in the tremendous landslide and subsequent flood and the first responders who risked their lives to help the victims. Larry is also the author of such books as The Fate of the Corps: What Became of the Lewis and Clark Explorers After the Expedition and The Perilous West: Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail. He has published articles in American History, the Missouri Historical Review, We Proceeded On, St. Louis Magazine, and several other periodicals. He has spoken on his research and publications in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Virginia. He and his wife, Deborah, live in Salt Lake City.
