About the Author
Brian Hurd has worked with middle school students for 20 years, the last ten as a teacher at Mary of Lourdes Middle School in Little Falls, MN, where he teaches about ancient civilizations, Minnesota History, American History, World Geography, and computers. During this time he has visited Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China (the latter six times, for one-month teaching experiences at middle schools).
Brian travels extensively, and has encountered more than 30 countries on every continent except Antarctica, including all 50 US states. He focuses his adventures on history and the things he teaches.
Brian graduated from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minnesota, with a journalism degree, and has worked as a newspaper reporter, editor, and photographer. He earned his second degree as a non-traditional student and has loved every minute of teaching.
In addition to traveling, Brian reads, writes, gardens, and cooks. He has lived in Central Minnesota his entire life, and now resides there on the Mississippi River with the love of his life, Terry, who is also a teacher . . . and their two cats.
