The Unpeopled Season

Daniel J. Rice


Daniel J. Rice was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, in 1979, and moved frequently during his youth. In 2006 he earned a degree in Watershed Science in Ely, MN, and began working as a Hydrologic Technician for the U.S. Geological Survey, first in New Jersey, and then Wyoming. In 2011 he resigned from his position and moved alone into a tent deep in the forests of northern Minnesota. While spending an extended amount of time living alone in the wilderness, he wrote the novel, This Side of a Wilderness, and the journal, The Unpeopled Season. He is the founder of Riverfeet Press and Jumping Off Point: Adventure Provisions. Currently he lives in Livingston, MT, where he spends his time camping and fishing the Beartooth Mountains.

He is also the founder and lead guide at Riverfeet Fly Fishing in the Blue Ridge Mountains region of southwestern Virginia.
