Meet the Author

Hoss Barker is a retired Oregon logger, Alaska timber tramp, bison rancher and ex-Marine-turned-poet. For six years, he worked in the wild and scenic section of Rogue River wilderness in Oregon at Paradise Lodge as a handyman and caretaker.

He wrote four books there during the solitude of the long, wet and wild winters. Hoss would stay upriver for 3-4 weeks at a time and then go home to Eugene, Oregon, to be with his wife, Kris, for a week. After two or three days, he was ready to head back up the canyon to Paradise and away from "The World."

Look for Hoss' new book, "My Time in Paradise," to be published sometime in 2013.
