Charles Norris-Brown was born in the small northern Pennsylvania town of Warren. He grew up as an artist including a few arts classes at Penn State. By 1984, he had completed his Ph.D. in combined Sociology and Anthropology at Lund University in Sweden, based on fieldwork he did in what is now Uttarakhand, India. With a continued focus on forest communities, his later research took him from the rain forests of Borneo to the hills of Appalachia. On a return to India in 1999 as part of a tiger conservation project, Charles was advised by local people to combine his forest conservation efforts, anthropology, and his art to create children’s books. In time, that change of focus would result in his book Did Tiger Take the Rain? published in Brattleboro, VT in 2016 and now freely available through Pratham Books, India.
