Kathy Johnson, an art teacher, spends six months of the year in Northern Wisconsin near Lake Superior. The rest of the year is spent in central Illinois along the Illinois River. Johnson, renown for her on location landscape paintings, also engages in life drawing and carvings.
    "Creating the illustrations for Hawk Dancer," she says, "has brought together my own life experiences."
    Her interpretations make the viewer an eyewitness to the phenomena of Northern Wisconsin's mystery. The sights, smells, sound and texture of the pristine landscape, waters and flora are all there in her works. She dipped her brush unto the pallet provided by Grandfather Great Mystery before touching it to the canvas. It is an experience to behold the connectedness of all creation through Johnson's works.

Editor: Charles M. Browne

Charles (Meymahongebe) Browne, a life time resident of Wisconsin's Lake Superior coastline, is the son and grandson of the ordained Ministers / Medicine Men who inspired this book. He is also the paternal uncle of the author, Bro. Joshua.
    Without Browne's expertise and given history, Hawk Dancer probably would not have been published. Charles and his wife Elaine made essential corrections to assist their author-nephew who has dyslexia. Browne, a writer and artist in his own rite, presented many suggestions to clarify the cultural, historical and spiritual incidents brought out in the book.
