Meet some of our Guides & Teachers: Carole Latimer
Carole Latimer
Carole Latimer is from an old pioneer family in the California gold country and grew up backpacking, fishing, and camping. She graduated from UC Berkeley and went on to law school- but before finishing the first year fled for the Oregon woods to work as a fire lookout for the Forest Service. She's worked as a radio reporter, newspaper photographer, ski instructor, and a cocktail waitress in Nevada gambling casinos.

In 1978, after getting fired from a secretarial job, she founded Call of the Wild. Carole is the author of Wilderness Cuisine, & writes and develops recipes for Backpacker, Eco-Traveler, and Sunset Magazines. She's co-hosted a 13-part cooking series for television, Outdoor Cuisine (Outdoor Life Channel), and has appeared on Good Morning America.
