Ross Klatte

Ross Klatte was born in Minneapolis and raised on his family’s dairy farm just west of the city. He worked as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, as feature editor of the National Bowlers Journal, in Chicago, and as a copy editor for the Detroit Free Press. He immigrated with his wife to Canada in 1971 and homesteaded near Nelson, BC, where he lives with his wife. The opening chapter of his memoir is adapted from his original essay, which won the first prize in the CBC Literary Competition for 1990.

“Ross Klatte sweeps the reader immediately into the excitement and fascination of childhood on a Minnesota farm. His loving attention to detail, and his consummate literary skill, takes the reader on a ride as wild as a toboggan run down a steep hillside alongside the barn.”
~Tom Wayman
