Martin von Harter is a Susquehannock Native American of the infamous Longhouse Gili Yu. A former cowboy, the author worked several ranches in his time. Martin spent time as a trucker, truck gardener, cow horse trainer, general laborer, stonemason, moonshiner (but non-drinker!), dishwasher, security guard, and is now a sacred-person. Inspiration for his stories come from listening around campfires to older people from Mexico. His home-away-from-home is Hotel Margarita, Creel, Chihuahua, Mexico.
