This book was especially fun to write, and I learned so much about the early logging industry during the process. Of course the story includes a reference or two to the world’s most famous Lumberjack, Paul Bunyan.

Set in northern Minnesota in the 1890’s, A Wife for Big John, is a sweet love story about Dani Jones, who wrangles a job as a logging camp cook, and Big John Thompson, who is flabbergasted to learn the cook he hired for the lumberjacks is a slip of a girl. When Miss Jones decides he needs a wife and sets out to find him one, John’s life is turned upside down.

The book is dedicated to my father, who worked in logging camps as a young man, and provided our family with unending tales of his life.
