My articles and essays about travel, science, and nature have appeared in The New York Times, Audubon, National Geographic Traveler, Islands, and many other publications. I've traveled to the Gobi Desert to find the Przewalski's horse, the arctic plains of Ellesmere Island to count musk ox and wolves, and the caverns of southern Minnesota where an iconoclastic spelunker uses explosives to discover and explore new caves.
My books about travel and the natural world include Super Volcano, the story of the active volcano beneath Yellowstone that could wipe out a sixth of the world's population, and Wild Shore, an account of two seasons kayaking around Lake Superior. My newest book, Paddle North: Canoeing the Boundary Waters-Quetico Wilderness, with photographer Layne Kennedy, was published this fall by Minnesota Historical Society Press.
