“Michael Modzelewski is the John Muir of our times. Like Muir, he provides quiet and reverential observance of nature and our own humanity, while interjecting riveting narratives of unanticipated death-defying adventures. His writing is visceral and poetic, alternately humorous and heart-rending, able to sweep the reader seamlessly into his world. I have spent happy hours with his writing.” — Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and The Hundred Secret Senses.

    Hi Michael,

    We were on the Golden Princess the week of August 30 thru September 6 and your talks were one of the true highlights of our cruise. My friend Bill and I were fortunate to catch you all alone at your book signing table one afternoon and seeing your picture with the giant Brown Bear, I asked you if that was one of your friends. You said no he was a Hollywood bear and you explained how the picture came about … funny story. I then said to you the story you told about the fox (I believe you named her Francine) and her pups was truly heartwarming and touching to me. When we take another Alaskan Cruise (and we will) we are going to ask the cruise line to please include you as part of the program because I’m sure we’ll have other friends along. Thanks again for sharing your stories with us. We’re letting all of our friends know that you were really a surprise highlight of the cruise.
