"Walkin’ Jim Stoltz set off on his last forever wild hike on Friday, September 3, 2010." So begins the notice on Walkin' Jim's web site. Many Michigan lover's of the outdoors have heard Jim in concert or read his poetry. With a brother who lives in Honor, Michigan, Jim was often doing concert tours in this state.

His programs were a unique blend of music, images and monologue. He hiked thousands of miles, and many long trails, collection material for his programs, writing songs, and taking pictures. Jim loved the earth and was a crusader for environmental causes.

In addition to concerts, Jim wrote poetry, published as "Whisper Behind the Wind.” His book, “Walking with the Wild Wind: Reflections on a Montana Journey,” is a personal journey of his philosophy.

Walkin' Jim called Montana home, and lost his battle with cancer there, this week. He was 57.
