About the Author

Born in Norfolk, Virginia in 1924, John Haines studied at the National Art School, the American University, and the Hans Hoffmann School of Fine Art. He homesteaded in Alaska for over twenty years. He is the author of several major collections of poetry; a collection of reviews, essays, interviews, and autobiography, ""Living Off the Country"" (University of Michigan Press, 1981); and a memoir, ""The Stars, the Snow, the Fire"" (Graywolf Press, 1989). He has received numerous awards, including two Guggenheim Fellowships, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the Alaska Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts, and most recently a Western State Arts Federation Lifetime Achievement Award and a Lenore Marshall/""The Nation"" poetry prize for ""New Poems 1980-1988 ""(Story Line Press, 1990). He is currently a freelance writer and teacher and still spends part of each year in Alaska.
