No place is too remote. He likes to go to the edge, because the best stories often occur where mystery, danger, and ambiguity reside. He has been a member of the prestigious Explorers Club. Over the decades, he taught non-fiction writing to several thousand students at Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, and workshops across B.C. He sees his former students as his legacy. Daniel Wood 1943-2021.
