About the Author
After returning to Finland from Sweden, Kauko was forced to live in poor conditions like many other children at that time. He lived with his mother, a teacher, in another village's school which was close to his actual home village. Although his father didn't die in any of the wars, he did die from a stroke a couple of years after the War of Lapland had ended. After growing up a little, Kauko was transferred to newly built Rovaniemi to continue studies there. Later, Kauko left Rovaniemi and after doing military service, he moved to Helsinki, the southern capital. There he participated in higher engineering studies and received a diploma in land surveying. After marrying and having five children, and being carried to different places in southern Finland, he returned in 1979 to Rovaniemi. Shortly after this, he got a vacancy as a teacher in land surveying from the local polytechnic institute. Kauko is retired now and he still has his original wife. They have five children and six grandchildren.
