Genre: Non-Fiction, Short Stories

William H. Geagan was born and raised in Bangor. His love of nature and the outdoors began at an early age and even as a youngster he drew and wrote about it. After he graduated from Bangor High School, he bought a cabin in the woods and spent two years there, writing articles and stories about the outdoors and submitting them to various national publications. Eventually, this led to a long career in outdoors and sports writing, a nationally syndicated outdoor column, and positions on the sports staff at the Bangor Daily Commercial and the Bangor Daily News.
