About Jonathan Derksen

Jonathan Derksen grew up in Canada, the U.S., Japan, Malaysia and Bolivia. His writing and photography have appeared in magazines, newspapers and books in several countries, and documentary film work with National Geographic and Discovery Channel has taken him from the Andes to the Himalayas. Most recently, he has produced a series of short films about La Senda Verde Wildlife Sanctuary in Bolivia, and he co-authored a photography book Madidi: An Uncertain Future, featuring what is considered to be the most biologically diverse region on the planet. He has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia, and this is his first longer work of non-fiction. His passions include reef and watershed conservation, leading expeditions, and trying to be a good husband and father. The Derksens live in the Okanagan Highlands of British Columbia.


Review by: Claudio Porstmann on April 13, 2012 :
Good literature, well written and an entertaining read. As soon as I read the first page I was hooked and had to continue.
A Man on the Misty Trail is an interesting tale, spun from a singular situation and very well developed. The subtle mood shifts, the scenery and description, they all add up to a believable story. Be sure not to pass this up.
