Jeff Wilson grew up on a family farm in Linn County, Iowa. He fell in love with the land as he tramped the woodlots and creeks near his rural home, rode horses in the moonlight and bonded with animals domestic and wild. Adventure lured him to the Northwoods of Wisconsin where he found his true passion, the wild country and animals of the Lake Superior region.
Terry Daulton, Jeff’s intrepid partner for over 25 years, specializes in environmental education. Her work often crosses boundaries between the arts and sciences, creating traveling art and science exhibits. Her fine art, mostly pastels and printmaking, can be seen in galleries in northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
Jeff’s book Wrong Tree begins on a small family farm and takes the reader on Jeff Wilson’s wildlife journey from the fields of Iowa to the north woods of Wisconsin, and ultimately to far flung locations around the world. His tales involve beaver, bear, osprey, and loon, to name a few, weaving natural history and science into adventures that leave you laughing. Whether Jeff is sharing his pickup cab with beaver co-pilots, trapping and releasing black bear, or gripping the flakey bark of a pine tree as he climbs into an eagle nest you will come away wiser about the ways of nature and inspired to seek adventure in life.
Wrong Tree fits within the cadre of books dealing with wildlife management and environmental policy, challenging the reader to consider serious issues such as climate change and biodiversity while enjoying a rollicking tale.
