Douglas Wood has been called Minnesota’s “renaissance man” — author, artist, musician, naturalist, wilderness guide. As a writer of books for children and adults he has almost two and a half million copies in print, including the classics Old Turtle and Grandad’s Prayers of the Earth.

Among his many honors and awards have been the Christopher Medal, ABBY Award, International Reading Association Book of the Year, Minnesota Book Award, Midwest Publishers Association Book of the Year, Parent’s Choice Award, Barnes and Noble Star of the North, and Story Telling World Award.

Doug has read his books, narrated, and performed at the White House, New York’s famed Lincoln Center, and other major performing venues around the country.

Not only an author-illustrator, Doug is also an accomplished musician and composer. He performs his original, nature-themed music on guitar, banjo, and mandolin, often performing with his Wild Spirit Band.

In his books, frequent speaking engagements, and far-flung wilderness expeditions Doug continues to explore the relationship between the natural world and the human spirit. Douglas Wood lives with his family in a log cabin in the pines by the Mississippi River.
