Read full description of the books Four Miles to Pinecone:This book is not just a mystery or action book its has great feeling to it. The characters have life because this book has some truth behind it. The main character is a real person that person wrote this book and many more. He has a way to make the character have pop out of the book and stay with you.
My favorite part of the book is when Jon Hassler decided to turn in his best friend to the police because he cared so much him he did not want him to go down that path. He learned that you can break so laws very small laws like fish with out a license but big laws like stealing or hurting someone is not to be tolerated.
Read information about the authorJon Hassler was born in Minneapolis, but spent his formative years in the small Minnesota towns of Staples and Plainview, where he graduated from high school. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English from St. John's University in 1955. While teaching English at three different Minnesota high schools, he received his Master of Arts degree in English from the University of North Dakota in 1960. He continued to teach at the high school level until 1965, when he began his collegiate teaching career: first at Bemidji State University, then Brainerd Community College (now called Central Lakes College), and finally at Saint John's, where he became the Writer-in-Residence in 1980.
During his high-school teaching years, Hassler married and fathered three children. His first marriage lasted 25 years. He had two more marriages; the last was to Gretchen Kresl Hassler.
In 1994, Hassler was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, a disease similar to Parkinson's. It caused vision and speech problems, as well as difficulty walking, but he was able to continue writing. He was reported to have finished a novel just days before his death. Hassler died in 2008, at the age of 74, at Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.
The Jon Hassler Theater in Plainview, Minnesota, is named for him.
