About the Author
Minnesota native, writer and appreciator of early American and Canadian history, Nikki Rajala grew up watching her mother, Agnes Peloquin Rajala, create literary works based on the rich heritage of their family's ancestors. Nikki joined her in researching the lives and history of French-Canadian voyageurs and explorers. Nikki's first book, Some Like It Hot: The Sauna, Its Lore and Stories, published in 2000 by North Star Press of St. Cloud, Minnesota, is a reflection of her Finnish heritage and love of the family sauna. Agnes and Nikki co-authored this book, Waters Like the Sky, which pays homage to being direct descendants of French-Canadian voyageurs. After Agnes died in October of 2013, Nikki carried the legacy of Waters Like the Sky forward, determined to share this historical adventure with readers everywhere. The end result is an action-packed, yet historically accurate, adventure. Nikki is also an avid photographer. She retired from teaching English as a second language and currently works as a copy editor. She resides in Rockville, Minnesota, with her husband, Bill Vossler, also a freelance writer.
