Linda Teigland Clark
I grew up, a farmer’s daughter, in a small community south of Mankato, Minnesota. After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree from Mankato State University, I began traveling my life’s path. While on this journey I have worn many hats: native Minnesotan, California transplant, high school teacher, junior college instructor, Deputy Sheriff, wife, mother, author, and gold rush historian.
My current hat is that of my Mother Lode Gold Rush living-history persona, Storyteller Hardluck Lin: Teller of Tales, Spinner of Yarns, and Keeper of the History.
