Dean Kuipers is a former environmental editor and writer for the Los Angeles Times. He is the author of Burning Rainbow Farm (winner of the Michigan Notable Book Award) and Operation Bite Back. His work has been published in The Atlantic, Outside Magazine, Rolling Stone, Men's Journal and Playboy.

He is the author, most recently, of: The Deer Camp: A Memoir of a Father, A Family and the Land that Healed Them

This is a memoir about three sons stuck in difficult relationships with their father and how they rediscovered their love as a family by working to restore a dried-up Michigan sand farm they all loved. This true story about a hunting and fishing clan explores the connections between the mind and nature and how families can be remade through acknowledging the restorative power of the land. This is a power that can be tapped by anyone willing to put in the time and energy to rethink their connection to habitat.
