Sigurd Olson was a conservationist and writer and a driving force in preserving the solitude and quiet peace of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. A native Wisconsinite who moved to Minnesota to teach biology, he faced the displeasure of many around Ely who wanted to have fly-in resorts and roads through the pristine natural wonders in Northern Minnesota. Kristin Eggerling has written a biography of Sig to illustrate for children the importance of fighting to save the quiet places and to instill a love of the natural world around us.
Kristin Eggerling is a conservationist and a writer who lives in Northern Minnesota. She will be in the studio as our guest for this show, talking with Mike Haubrich about the inspiration of the wilderness and how it gives her breath.
