Woodville author Doug Alderson is no stranger to the outdoors.
It has been a love of his since he was young and his books typically focus on the environment that he treasures, including the history and culture of the specific area.
“To get to know an area well, you have to get to know its history,” Alderson said.
He was born in Illinois, near Chicago, and remembers having to drive several hours to make it to the wilderness.
“We didn’t have much in the ways of outdoors,” he said.
