Short biography
Fraser Harrison took up full-time writing in 1975. He has written reviews and articles for a wide variety of papers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Independent, Country Living and BBC Wildlife, has been a regular contributor to Radio 4's Kaleidoscope, and has published many books. 

In 1993 he travelled to the Midwest to make a programme for Radio 3 about the Black Hills, South Dakota and write a travel article for The Sunday Times. Since then he has written frequently for the travel section of The Sunday Times. 

In June 1995 he made a second radio feature in the US, this time tracing General Custer's last trail to the Little Bighorn in Montana. His third feature covered Davy Crockett's death at the Alamo. The American explorers Lewis and Clark have been a long-standing interest of his, and in 1998 he followed their trail across the Rockies. He is writing a play for Radio 4 based on their famous journey of 1804-6. 
Fraser lives in Suffolk with his wife and two children.
