Joshua Veith

Joshua Veith is an educator, adventurer, and outdoor enthusiast. He has traveled to more than 30 countries—including China, Nepal, Syria, and Turkey—and once made a 19-day Pacific Ocean crossing on a cargo freighter from Seattle to Hong Kong. For three years Josh worked as a deckhand on commercial fishing trawlers out of Newport, RI, and Cape May, NJ. He is a graduate from the same high school—Oak Park, IL—as Ernest Hemingway and spent a year studying at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg, Germany. He played club lacrosse and graduated from the University of Michigan, later earning an MA in Literature from Eastern Michigan University. Today Joshua lives with his wife and two sons in northern Michigan, fishes and hikes in the same spots that Hemingway enjoyed as a young man, and is continually inspired by—and teaches a class on—JRR Tolkien’s masterful depictions of nature and friendship. As a public school teacher and writer, Josh strives to be an Indigenous ally, recognizing that traditional relationships with the environment offer the most sustainable pathways for humankind’s interaction with the planet. Joshua has authored several children’s books and is hard at work on his next creative project, The Petoskey Papers, a time-traveling exploration of Hemingway in northern Michigan.
