Jim O'Donnell Bio


Archaeology, wilderness, and food are just a few of the driving factors behind award-winning author and photographer Jim O'Donnell's years of travel. His sometimes aimless wanderings have taken him to over forty countries and are to blame for the five languages he is sure he can stumble through.

O'Donnell is the author of Notes for the Aurora Society: 1500 Miles on Foot Across Finland and Rise and Go. He is also to blame for numerous articles, sordid tales, brilliant observations, half-finished novels, angry letters, and other scribblings. His work has appeared in such places as National Geographic Maps, New Mexico Magazine, Peaks and Plains, Original World Insights, Perceptive Travel, and several anthologies.
