Cathie English, a folk singer/songwriter from Saint Cloud Minnesota, has written a song inspired by the legendary John Beargrease and she's sharing it through ReverbNation.

According to her online bio, Cathie has shared the stage with several national acts including Peter Mayer, Martin Zellar and Jim Brandenburg.  Her first album was released in 2014.

Her song "Call Of The Wild", which you can listen to below, opens with the following lyrics:

Trees silhouette , pale skies Stars cross the moon. Ice crystals swirl the dawn will break soon. Up bound the North Shore trail Sawtooth Mountains lie ahead. John Beargrease brings the news With four leggeds and a sled.
