About the Author......Tim Cronin

Author Tim Cronin B&W

Tim was born and raised in Chicago but with a life-long appreciation of the natural world.  In 1995 he took his first Medicine Hawk Wilderness Skills workshop, on what was the hottest, rainiest, most bug-infested weekend Medicine Hawk had ever experienced. He loved it!  Tim began immediately to hone his skills, particularly fire-making and tracking, and has since taken and/or taught numerous classes and workshops on various primitive and nature-related skills.

 

Tim’s first “public” demonstration of the bow drill came at a Wheaton [Illinois] Park District workshop.  Again the weather was lousy (the “Cronin Curse”)—moderate-to-heavy rain, damp, and muggy—terrible conditions for any fire-starting, much less an attempt with a primitive bow drill.  Under the protection of a park pavilion (four poles with a roof dripping water from its perimeter) Tim cranked out a coal and blew his tinder bundle into flame to the awe and applause of the assembled students.Double click to insert body text here ...
