Adventures of the Northwoods

by Lois Walfrid Johnson

Lois writes from her heart, recreating images and everyday people from her childhood growing up in Minnesota. Her fast-moving stories draw the reader in, making them ideal for reluctant and avid readers alike.  Known as a writer who is a “trusted friend of families,” parents can hand her books to their children and know they will enjoy the adventure as they learn important lessons and values.


Besides being a prolific author, Lois has been an instructor for the Writer’s Digest School and speaker for audiences ranging from pre-K to adults.


Mott Media is pleased to publish Lois's Adventures of the Northwoods Series:

Best-selling novels set in the early 1900's in Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin, and Michigan, these compelling, historically accurate stories attract reluctant, average, and gifted readers. Both boys and girls identify with characters who face danger and mystery while learning to deal with peer pressure, family relationships, and the need for unconditional love and forgiveness.


"In her Northwoods Adventures, Lois Walfrid Johnson blends regional history, positive values, and engaging characters with mystery to boot. The same blend occurs in the Riverboat series, making the Underground Railroad very real to young readers. Our family gathered around and read each of her books aloud."
