Anthony J. Gerst, is an author/columnist and activist. He resides near the confluence of the Iowa and Mississippi Rivers. His favorite author, Mark Twain, was an editor for the Muscatine Journal near where he lives. Mr. Gerst has offered musings, on whether the massive oaks on his property, were once shade trees for the adventurist and wandering young Aldo Leopold. Mr. Leopold being considered the creator of the modern environmental movement.

He writes a mothly column for The Zephyr, an Independent newspaper out of Galesburg Il. He has a twenty-nine year history of writing letters to the editor. In this time, he has been printed on five continents and in various papers across the continental United States. "Ghosts of the Erie Canal," to date, is his only book.

From early childhood he expressed an interest in politics. He currently reads Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy Magazine, The Wilson Quarterly and Scietific American on a regular basis. Since early this century his attention has been drawn toward environmental activism. His column, Earth Line was first created to address the issues of Global Warming and its affects as climate change. It should be noted that Earth Line has expanded to an open format where he addresses a large range of topics and current events.

Many people, who have read his works in various social communities, have remarked upon his philosophy of writing.
Writing to Mr. Gerst is a challenge, an art form of expression. However, beyond this, his view on writing is: if he can challenge one reader to question their opinions, then he as writer has succeded. Why? Because he has made them challenge their own comfort zone.
