About the Author

Paul Gruchow, once described as our contemporary Thoreau, wrote on subjects ranging from the culture of the tall grass prairie to what we teach (and fail to teach) rural children. His work is widely acclaimed for its lyrical prose and eloquence. A respected and inspiring educator, Paul Gruchow's writer in residence involvements included St. Olaf and Concordia Colleges, The University of Minnesota, The Lake Superior Studies Program, as well as lectures and workshops in public schools, churches, bookstores, government and environmental organizations. He won both the Minnesota Book and Lifetime Achievement Awards and in the 1980's edited "The Worthington Globe," an award-winning newspaper. Paul Gruchow took his own life in Duluth, Minnesota, on February 22, 2004, at the age of 56.

Jim Brandenburg's photographs have won many national and international awards, and his work was included in "Life Magazine Collector's edition: The World's Best Photographs 1980-1990." Brandenburg was twice named "Magazine Photographer of the Year" by the National Press Photographer's Association (NPPA). In 1991, he was the recipient of the World Achievement Award from the United Nations Environmental Programme in Stockholm, Sweden.

1000 Friends of Minnesota in a nonprofit group that encouraged Minnesotans to write about the land they love and to fight for its preservation.
