Authors Bio John is a practicing Taoist that values knowledge and experience over anything material. His passion to explore began as a Recon Marine while stationed abroad in Africa, South America and Asia. He is a former bodyguard, no holds barred fighter and currently an expert in the ancient Greek art of Pankration. He continually strives to balance his extreme physical nature with a more cultural and spiritual side. By borrowing from the philosophy of the samurai warrior – Myamoto Mysashi, he strives to be true to the way of the poet/warrior “pen and sword in accord.” He also holds close to the ideals of his ancestors so as to someday become an equally dedicated environmentalist. James is a father of three and an avid fossil collector who teaches his children the value of staying close to the earth. His background research of Ojibwa history and that of the early European settlers that trapped the waterways delineating the Canadian border was instrumental in producing an accurate book. Both John and Jim are ready for any opportunity to hit the open road and discover exciting things in America’s backcountry as well as finding out new things about themselves. They are currently working on completing their second book about the darker side of adventure seeking called “Gutting the Monkey.”
