Meet the Author

Since marrying and moving to the country twenty-two years ago, Mary Crowley has been surrounded by forests, prairies, birds, dogs, cats, horses and lots of other wild creatures. When husband, Mike, built her Lady Slipper Cottage in the woods, her dream expanded, but it wasn’t complete until she became a grandmother. Kate has been a naturalist, an educator, and a writer for 30 years, first at the Minnesota Zoo and then the Audubon Center of the North Woods. She has co-authored 12 books with Mike and writes for magazines and a monthly nature newspaper column. Kate enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, scrapbooking, reading and spending as much time as possible with her grandchildren. She cares deeply about preserving the natural world.

Mike Link is the author of 22 books and numerous magazine articles. He and his wife, Kate, live in Willow River, Minnesota, where they enjoy helping their grandchildren discover the world of nature and play. The bird feeders are always full and the forest has wonderful trails. For 37 years Mike directed the Audubon Center and now, entering retirement, he looks forward to writing, teaching for both Northland College and Hamline University, and of course spending time with the grandchildren. As his books attest, traveling is another passion. With fifty states and twenty countries covering his travels, paddles, hikes, and explorations, he feels that he owes a debt to the earth. Whether we call it Mother Nature, Gaia or Creation, the earth is our source of air, water and sustenance, and its destruction is a crime.
