“For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to write nature books,” says Stan Tekiela, famed Minnesota naturalist and wildlife photographer.


And that, he has done — a lot.

“My first book came out 25 years ago,” he adds.

“Since then, I’ve written about 120-130 more — and they’re all natural history books and field guides.”

Indeed, Tekiela is considered one of the state’s foremost experts on its natural history — particularly plant and animal life.
