About the Author:

About the Author: Fred A. Brede Mr. Brede is a talented storyteller, author, teacher and speaker who enjoys creating fictional tales from North American history and the Western Frontier. His books have thrilling action, charismatic characters, and a blush of romance that give readers a glimpse into that era. He has written numerous books in the historical genre. He lives with his loving wife in Osceola, Wisconsin and is surrounded by his three adult children and grandchildren. During his youth Mr. Brede hiked the Ice Age Trail, enjoyed hunting and fishing, and worked hard to become an Eagle Scout. His love and respect for nature continues today as Mr. Brede regularly volunteers at the Wisconsin Interstate Park where he greets guests and shares his experiences of the Saint Croix River Valley and Northwestern Wisconsin. Mr. Brede wrote his first book while attending the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay where he earned a BA in Managerial Systems with a Regional Analysis minor which lead him to a career with Wells Fargo in the Business Development Banking division. His career was an economical success, but he never lost his love for writing. He retired from banking in 2005 and has pursued his career as an author with equal tenacity. Mr. Brede’s college thesis on the Brazilian Killer Bee was so comprehensive and complete that his professor had it submitted to the Library of Congress in 1976. In reaching out to a wider reading audience and mainstream fiction, Mr. Brede has bravely crossed over into the romantic adventure genre, taking his stories deeper into the hearts and lives of his characters, letting readers see their courage and trials, their hopes and dreams, while continuing to write intriguing stories that touch the heart.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 140 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Where the glaciers stopped in North West Wisconsin was where our family started their lives, first building a resort in 1915 and then loosing it in the Great Depression. I grew up learning the lessons of life starting in the Army during World War I, and living long enough to see my grandchildren enjoy the same country I did. This most unique country made me strong, resourceful and challenged me to make something of myself with all the adversities that comes along with raising a family. Along with the hard times came the joy of nature and respect for the environment that was yet unspoiled and the family and friends that supported and gave me advise when I needed it. In the years I grew up in people depended on each other and the bonding was much closer than it is today. It is my sincere wish that all who read this book will feel the love I had for my neighbors as well as nature and the ground that the glaciers last covered. This item ships from La Vergne,TN.
