Winslow: The Lost Hunters is a book David Curran had been thinking about for 20 years.
Curran moved to the wilderness in 1997 after earning an MFA in creative writing and an MA in Interpersonal Communication at the University of Montana. He moved to the wilderness of western Montana to write. Instead he spent the first four years building a log cabin because the 1918 miners cabin he first moved to was sinking.
He has lived in his wilderness cabin with his wife and editor Patricia year round ever since.
In winter they have to snowmobile 7 miles to reach their vehicle.
His many articles on writing have appeared in the Writer and Writer’s Digest.
He was a regular contributor to Louis L’Amour’s Western Magazine while that magazine was published.
He got his first big break while earning his MFA when he sold a story with co-writer David Braden to the television series WISEGUY with Ken Wahl.
His work has been published in Mother Earth News, Chemical Engineering, and other magazines. For years before moving to the wilderness he published Curran’s Ginseng Farmer and wrote the go-to book on ginseng farming THE COMPLETE GINSENG GROWER’S MANUAL.
He wrote and produced KNAPTID 4 DAYS AFTER THE FIRST ABDUCTION along with other movies. He is David Curran IV on imdb.com.
