About Carson Gardner

Carson Gardner, a genuine Minnesota-native codger, is a board-certified small-town family doctor and a founding member of the Park Rapids Jackpine Writers’ Bloc. He left the practice of corporate medicine in 1999. Since then he and his wife, Gail, have been living and learning on Gaa-waabaabiganikaag—Land of Abundant White Clay—the White Earth Ojibwe/Anishinaabe Reservation. He has actually had a few poems published—even fewer prose works—and wrote lyrics for an album entitled The Heron Smiled; which helped its singer win a 2001 Native American Music Award. Gardner is bear-clan, a cedar flute player, a traditionally-observant pipestone carver, a joyful dog rescuer, a perennial student of Ojibwe language, culture and spirituality, a hard sci-fi and straight- ahead jazz fan, a compulsive storyteller and an ingenuous dreamer who frustrates sophisticated cynics right and left. He even has a day job—medical director of the White Earth Nation Tribal Health Department and Reservation Ambulance Service.
