About the Narrator

James Oliver Curwood (1878–1927) was born in Owosso, Michigan, where he lived for most of his life. He studied journalism at the University of Michigan, and in 1900 he left the university and married Cora Leon Johnson. This was also the year he sold his first story, “Across the Range,” for five dollars. He went to work for the Detroit News-Tribune covering funerals and for a pharmaceutical company until he was able to support himself through his writing. In 1909 Curwood divorced Cora and married Ethel Greenwood. That was also the year he took his first trip into the Canadian Northwest and thereafter would spend up to six months each year in the arctic wilderness. This was where he set some of his most successful books. Over his lifetime, Curwood wrote over thirty books. Among them were The Grizzly King, The Wolf Hunters, The Alaskan, The Country Beyond, and Son of the Forests.
