Author, illustrator, musician, composer, naturalist, wilderness guide: this is Douglas Wood. From classic books like Old Turtle to CDs, concerts, and keynotes, Doug conveys the wonder, beauty, and mystery of the natural world and its relevance to the human spirit. Connecting it all is a passion to communicate in words and music the inspiration to be found in Nature–not as a place to visit, but a place to call home.
Douglas Wood is a fiscal year 2013 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. Doug’s upcoming book “Lifescape: Deep Woods, Wild Waters” is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
