Biography

Jurgen Dahl (1929--2001) was a bookseller until he sold his bookshop to work as a writer and gardener. Until his death, he worked for WDR, a large German broadcasting station, and Die Zeit, a major weekly magazine. He was the author of nearly a dozen books. For many years, he also edited Crossroads, an annual journal of critical thinking. He received the prestigious Deutscher Journalistenpreis in 1965, the Bruno H. Schubert Environment Prize in 1987 for his work to protect the environment, and the German Horticultural Association's prize for nature education in 1998. Dahl and his wife, Hella, lived on his farm, Lindenhof near Kleve, on the lower Rhine.
