Nancy Robinson Masters has been wearing jeans all of her life. Nancy grew up on a cotton farm in West Texas where she learned to drive a tractor before she learned to drive a car. She is an award-winning author of 18 books and hundreds of stories and articles. “That old tractor started me on journeys that have taken me around the world. Everywhere I’ve been, including Antarctica as a guest of the National Science foundation, I’ve met people wearing jeans!”
