Dust Kunkel grew up in Ghana, Africa, missing the '70's and MTV years. He had his parents' Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan records for lyrical inspiration, African music for rhythm. He's driven grain-trucks, tractors, and a huge yellow school bus filled with campers and kool-aid in Montana; learned Humanities from Scheck, Gephart and Hill at Concordia; raft-guided the Salmon River; foster-parented abandoned children; directed year-round camp programs; instructs young adults as servant leaders; and received a Masters degree in experiential education from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. His poems explore landscape and the person-hood of things. And his anachronicity.
