Chance Series

One of the author’s early ‘Seth and Travis’ traveling tent presentations

“Semi-retired” after nearly four decades in the classroom, educator and outdoorsman Ron Gamer put experiences into practice by authoring an outdoor adventure series.

Set in Minnesota’s famed Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area, the Seth and Travis “Chance” survival sagas have received high marks from students, parents, and teachers alike.

With dozens of school and civic presentations successfully concluded, Ron still enjoys taking his little tent and campfire production, “Stirring Up a Story”, out and about.

Summer of the White Fawn is more than a “up north” adventure. It’s a coming of age tale where the young hero discovers as much about himself and the meaning of true friendship as he learns about the risks and rewards of care-taking a wild orphan.
