Kurt Mead is a naturalist and homesteader trying to make a living in the forest near Finland, MN. He is the founder of the Minnesota Odonata Survey Project (dragonflies and damselflies) and the author of the award-winning "Dragonflies of the North Woods." He recently spent a year in Sweden with his family, where, among other things, he played with Swedish birch and pine in an attempt to make beautiful items of practical value. Every year brings him closer to his goal of becoming an old, eccentric putterer.
