Mark Liebenow

Author's Bio

Mark Liebenow grew up in Wisconsin near John Muir’s boyhood home reading about Muir, Aldo Leopold, and Sigurd Olson. When he moved to California, he went to Yosemite and discovered the transcendence of nature that Muir wrote about in his books. Liebenow writes about nature, poetry, recovery from grief, and the theology of fools. His poems have been set to music by composers Stephen Heinemann, an eight-minute work for chorus and soprano saxophone, Robert Levy, a jazz song, and piano works by David Henkelmann and John Arrowood, Jr.
