Author, illustrator, musician, naturalist, wilderness guide, “Minnesota’s renaissance man”… this is Douglas Wood. Doug is the creator of classic children’s books like Old Turtle and AQuiet Place. He publishes critically acclaimed adult titles like Deep Woods, WildWaters and Paddle Whispers. He visits countless schools, motivating students and teachers alike with his story of going from the “worst reader in the class” who struggled with ADHD and dyslexia, to becoming an international best selling author. And in programs for churches, libraries, nature centers, and civic organizations, Doug communicates through words and music the inspiration to be found in nature—not as a place to visit, but a place to call home.
