Jonathan Hanson

Jonathan Hanson grew up in northeast Tucson, Arizona, with Sabino and Bear Canyons as his backyard, providing him with years of desert expeditions, hunting like the Apaches, and building wickiups (which failed spectacularly). He has since written for a score of outdoor and adventure magazines including Outside, National Geographic Adventure, Nature Conservancy, and Global Adventure, and in 2007, he and three friends founded Overland Journal, of which he was executive editor until Spring 2011. Jonathan is the author of a dozen books, several co-authored with his wife, Roseann, on subjects including natural history, sea kayaking, outdoor photography, and wildlife tracking. Awards include: the Arizona Press Club Award for natural history feature writing; the National Outdoor Book Award; and the National Park Service award for interpretive excellence. His book Outside Adventure Travel: Sea Kayaking was a finalist for the 7th Annual Banff Mountain Book Festival Adventure Travel Writing Award. Jonathan’s exploration experience encompasses land- and sea-scapes from the Atacama Desert to the Beaufort Sea, from the Rift Valley to the Australian Outback, and modes of transportation from sea kayaks to sailboats to bicycles to Land Cruisers. He has traveled among and worked with cultures as diverse as the Seri Indians and the Himba, the Inuit and the Maasai. He's taught tracking, natural history writing, four-wheel-driving techniques, and other subjects for many conservation and government organizations. He is an elected fellow of the Explorers Club and the Royal Geographical Society, and a charter member of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.
