Jonathan Thomas Stratman (1948 - ) grew up Alaskan and has since lived in the Pacific Northwest. Whether for adult or youth, his novels richly recreate the core, old time Alaskan adventure and experience. Stratman's five novels, three for middle grades and two adult mysteries, range from coming of age adventure, to quirky, richly nuanced adult characters with enough plot turns and twists to keep you up after your bedtime.
His 'Father Hardy Alaska Mystery Series' highlights the pre-statehood Alaska, rough, untamed—unpredictable! And his "Cheechako" series, ca early '90s, predates computers and digital devices, highlighting active, dynamic teens—boys and girls—who live by their character and their wits. And don't forget the plucky husky!
"I wrote "Cheechako" for every boy and girl who ever wanted to drive a dogsled or go adventuring in the wilds of Alaska. It was a great place to grow up. I wanted to share that. This is the kind of book I craved as an early reader."
