Professional information

Intrigued by the vast wilderness of the Canadian North Miriam Körner moved to northern Saskatchewan from Germany over twenty years ago. With newly acquired chainsaw skills, she built a tiny cabin tucked away in the bush, learned to run a dog team, and how to survive in the wilderness.
Not long after her inauguration into the Canadian life-style she set out on her first thousand-mile dog team and canoe expedition along the ancient routes of the peoples who first inhibited this country.
She shares her passion for wilderness and the deep respect of the people she meets on her journeys through her award-winning children's books.
