Meet the Author

Peter Stekel began walking at an early age and plans to continue walking right up until the moment he stops moving. He prefers backpacking because there is nothing like ten days in the wilderness to make you humble and appreciative of the powers of simplicity. He has hiked throughout the intermountain West, the West Coast, the Pacific Northwest, and has flown west with the night. He has hiked the AT in eastern US, over a few tracks in eastern Australia and a bunch of places in the north of England. Obviously, he always carries a compass. Author of the mystery book, The Flower Lover, Peter Stekel has over 700 feature magazine and newspaper stories. He specializes in science, natural history, Olympic canoe and kayak racing, river running, Americana, and human interest. His writing specialty covers the Sierra Nevada mountains of California with a deep focus on Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. His publications appear in Sierra Heritage, American Forests, High Country News, Canoe&Kayak, Paddler, American Whitewater Journal, Sea Kayaker, Wild West, Appalachia Trailway News, AAA TravelChoices, E The Environmental Journal, EarthFirst! and others. Peter Stekel currently resides in Seattle, WA.
