About the Author

Jeff Moravec has spent more than 30 years (and nearly 500 nights in a tent) exploring the outdoors in Minnesota. In pursuing outdoor adventures--including hiking, backpacking, camping, biking, and paddling--he has criss-crossed Minnesota, from the North Shore of Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area to the tallgrass prairie and blufflands in the state's southern region. An accomplished writer and wildlife photographer, Jeff regularly recounts his travels in the Outdoors Weekend section of Minneapolis's Star Tribune. His writings have also appeared in national publications, and his photos have been displayed throughout the Midwest. Jeff has also written about and photographed the northern lights in Iceland; the lions of the Serengeti (Tanzania, Africa); and the windswept shorelines of Scotland and Ireland. Jeff has also spent decades as a volunteer for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and other outdoors organizations in Minnesota, working to protect, maintain, and improve the state's natural resources.
