Dennis McCann

Author Biography

Dennis McCann is a Wisconsin native and longtime explorer of the state's nooks, crannies, and, yes, its burial grounds. In his most recent book, Badger Boneyards: the Eternal Rest of the Story (2010), McCann has collected stories of Wisconsinites that he discovered while exploring graveyards across the state. 

A University of Wisconsin-Madison journalism graduate, McCann joined the Milwaukee Journal (which later became the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) in 1983 as a farm writer and state rover. His previous books include The Wisconsin Story: 150 Stories/150 Years (1998), Dennis McCann Takes You for a Ride (1999), and Rough Stuff (2007), a collection of his columns from Wisconsin Golfer magazine. Now a freelance writer, he spends most of his time with his wife Barb, a retired teacher, at their home on Lake Superior in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
