A World of Words


Nature and history: most of my writing is about one or the other. And sometimes – as in my latest book, Once They Were Hats: In Search of the Mighty Beaver – I write about both in tandem.

Click on the Writing tab to learn about each of my six books and to read or listen to excerpts. The Magazines and More section will take you to links to a selection of my articles and essays and my new radio documentary.

In News & Notes you can peruse my latest publications; read, listen to and watch some of my media interviews and talks; check out reviews of my books; find information about my readings, workshops and other events; and get updates on other exciting happenings in my world of words, from award nominations to film options to whatever lies around the next corner.
