About John Bragstad

Author in red winter coat, outside

I live next to the wild, enchanting shores of Lake Superior. My literary role models? People like Sigurd Olson, Robert Service, George McDonald, and Don Ian Smith. Recent books I've read? The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore and Under The Flaming Sky by Daniel James Brown.

"A former canoe guide in the BWCAW and Saskatchewan (Canada), John knows the outdoors intimately. In addition, he spent 25 years as a marriage counselor, and he offers some sage - safe - advice on relationships and how to maneuver through troubled waters." Cook County News Herald

Chapters weave to create a tapestry of the personal and the wisdom wilderness offers. Ideal for 10 minute nature reading group discussions. Canoeing has brought me many carefree moments. I have lived in both the U.S. and Canada. Nature has been one of my best teachers.

I am also a featured writer at Great to be part of that team!
