More About R. A. Montgomery & Jason Millet
Raymond A. Montgomery is the founder of the Choose Your Own Adventure interactive children's book series. Montgomery synthesized all of his varied educational and game theory work in the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series, first published by Bantam Books in 1979. The series grew into a publishing phenomenon with over 180 titles and 250 million copies published worldwide in over 35 languages. The books were unique in that they appealed equally to girls and boys, to reluctant readers and avid ones. The CYOA series has been used in classrooms from early elementary school to college. At the advent of the Internet age, the series was used frequently in curricula focused on explaining the interactivity of the World Wide Web to young children. After a successful stint in the mid-to-late-90's designing games for CD-ROM, Montgomery decided to re-launch the CYOA series based on the interest he was getting from former fans. Montgomery and partners Shannon Gilligan and Gordon Troy, Esq. have turned their full attentions to Choose Your Own Adventure since Fall 2004. The series is being reissued through Chooseco LLC, in Waitsfield, Vermont. R.A. MONTGOMERY is an avid outdoorsman. He has hiked in the Himalayas, climbed mountains in Europe, scuba-dived in Central America, and sailed in Franco-phone Africa .He has lived in France, travels frequently to Asia, and calls Vermont home. His interests include macroeconomics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels, and music. He has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters.
R. A. Montgomery currently resides in Warren, in the state of Vermont.

Great Book! Jan 10, 2007
This book takes me back to when I was in 3rd grade. I bought it for my 5th grader and he loved it! His teacher was amazed because he had been a fan of these books when he was younger. Good reading material, and keeps kids interested!!
Totalitarian Freedom Forever Apr 23, 2002
A cold war era vision of a future where the United States disintigrates into smaller regions, where one specifically in the west (called Dorado) falls into totalitarianism (!) complete with a stylized triangle shaped pinwheel symbol that implies a swastika. The reader is part of a rogue resistance group, whose over goal is to undermine the neofascist regime but more immediately - to escape (and hence the title.)
My favorite of R.A. Montgomery's CYOA books. I don't want to spoil much, just beware the treacherous Hayden.
