About Jo Deurbrouck
Award winning author Jo Deurbrouck is a former whitewater raft guide and a frequent wanderer down the rivers, up the mountains, and through the deserts of the West. She co-authored one previous nonfiction book, authored its revision, and has contributed to the Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, Paddler Magazine, Creative Nonfiction, The Spokesman-Review, The Vancouver Sun, and others. She holds a M.A. in English from Boise State University. She lives in Idaho with her husband and two dogs, where she is currently at work on another nonfiction book set in her beloved Idaho.
We asked her to describe this new project. Here’s what she said: “I’m really excited about this book. Anything Worth Doing let me share the river community’s love of rivers, especially free-flowing rivers. This new project feels like a natural next step. It’s about a 99-year-old former prospector who still lives in the Idaho backcountry, and will allow me to share his—and my own—love for our public lands, and my respect for a generation of backwoodsmen who didn’t just love the land: They read it like a book; they depended upon it."
ALSO AVAILABLE IN EBOOK FORMAT, AND NOW OUT IN AUDIOBOOK (UNABRIDGED AND NARRATED BY THE AUTHOR) FROM ALL MAJOR ONLINE SOURCES!
