What was it like to grow up in the late 1950s and early 1960s in a large family nestled in a tiny village on the banks of the Great River? Surrounded by breath-taking natural beauty and striking poverty in one of the least populated and poorest counties in the state, a family struggles to make ends meet while creating their own entertainment through fishing, trapping, and hunting along the hills, backwaters and sloughs of the mighty Mississippi River.

Harlan Flick was born and raised in De Soto, Wisconsin. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. His life has been spent as an educator teaching in public schools in Fennimore, Waunakee, Prairie du Chien and Richland Center, Wisconsin. He then broadened his horizons with teaching stints at international schools in Jakarta, Indonesia for 16 years and Suzhou, China for 3 years. His overseas experience has taken him to more than 25 countries and allowed many opportunities to travel. Some highlights he has had include: walking the beaches of Bali, trekking out of Kathmandu, Nepal, visiting the Taj Mahal in India, viewing Paris from atop the Eiffel Tower, viewing the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, walking on the Great Wall, visiting Shangri-La, and viewing the Terra Cotta warriors of Xi’an, China. He has stood next to prehistoric Stonehenge in England, boated up the Fjords of Norway, spent time with stone-age Dani tribesmen in Irian Jaya, ridden elephants in Thailand and spent a month walking the streets of the walled city of Chang Mai. All of these experiences have helped shape his view of the world and made him appreciate the beauty that is the driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. He lives in Richland Center, Wisconsin with his wife, son, and his many fly rods. He may be reached via email at email@example.com.
