Author Info
Peter Matthiessen
A "New Yorker by birth, not inclination" Peter Matthiessen broke with his wealthy Connecticut roots and Ivy League education to become a writer famous for adventures on all five continents, and his numerous nonfiction books and novels show a deep affinity for nature, exotic locales, and native cultures. After graduating from Yale, Matthiessen published several novels and was one of the founders of The Paris Review in 1953. However, his breakout work was his National Book Award-winning THE SNOW LEOPARD (1978), a memoir about an expedition in the Himalayas filled with ruminations on Zen Buddhism on the death of his second wife. IN THE SPIRIT OF CRAZY HORSE (1983), a defiant book accusing the FBI of falsely convicting Leonard Peltier for murder, led to a libel lawsuit by an FBI agent and the governor of South Dakota that prevented the book from being published in paperback for over a decade. Beginning in 1990 with KILLING MISTER WILSON, Matthiessen has published a trilogy about Edgar J. Wilson, a pioneer, murderer, and legend of the Florida Everglades. SHADOW COUNTRY, a revision of this epic trilogy, was nominated for the 2008 National Book Award.
