John Daniel, Gifted


John Daniel: Gifted

John Daniel is one of Oregon's finest writers, a Pacific Northwest Book Award and three-time Oregon Book Award winning author who lives in the Coast Range foothills west of Eugene. He joins us to read from his debut novel Gifted. Nature and human nature take center stage in this novel, set in the deep woods of western Oregon in the 1990s. The novel mines the clashes between environmentalists and timber communities as they battle over the future of the northwest's old-growth forests.

Daniel has written several nonfiction books, including The Far Corner, Rogue River Journal, Looking After, and The Trail Home. His essays and poems have appeared in Wilderness Magazine, Orion, Sierra,, The North American Review, Poetry, The Southern Review, and other journals and anthologies. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow and Jones Lecturer at Stanford University, he has taught as a writer-in-residence at colleges and universities across the country. Earlier in life he was a logger, hod carrier, railroader, and rock-climbing instructor.
