About the Author: Michael Joseph Oswald
Michael Joseph Oswald is an award-winning American travel writer. In 2003 he graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in electrical engineering. After four years working in a corporate environment, he escaped to a more adventurous lifestyle only to be mugged in Colombia, South America. Injuries sustained required surgery, and failure to follow doctor’s orders blessed him with a permanently prostrate pinkie. This unfortunate event resulted in prompt return home and pursuit of safer travel: kayaking, biking, and hiking across America’s National Parks. The fruit of these endeavors is Michael’s debut title: Your Guide to the National Parks.
When Michael isn’t sleeping in his tent or converted bus, he lives and writes (typing with all nine functional fingers) at his parents’ hobby farm in northeastern Wisconsin with his best friends, Powder and Steel.
