Lisa Densmore Ballard, author and member-owner at This House of Books, your community-owned, independent bookstore and tea shop in downtown Billings, MontanaAs she puts it on her website, "If it's outdoors, Lisa likely filmed it, photographed it or written about it."

A published writer since 1991, Lisa writes extensively about her outdoor experiences, including articles published in regional and national magazines about gear, plants, wildlife, people, and conservation and ten books to date.

Among Lisa's extensive library of photographs are award-winning images of broad vistas, historic landmarks, intriguing people, vibrant flora, fascinating fauna, and eye-catching abstracts. She has been recognized repeatedly as one of the top outdoor photographers in the United States.
