Listen to the Writer’s Range Podcast: On this episode, Mojo talks to writer and naturalist Jennifer Kingsley about the experiences that inspired her book, Paddlenorth: Adventure, Resilience and Renewal in the Arctic Wild, which won the 2015 National Outdoor Book Award for non-fiction.
Greystone Books is thrilled to announce that Jennifer Kingsley has been awarded the 2015 National Outdoor Book Award (NOBA) for Outdoor Literature in Non-Fiction for her first book, Paddlenorth: Adventure, Resilience, and Renewal in the Arctic Wild.
Paddlenorth is in good company with books by Dave Olesen, Michael Winter, Andrew Peacock and Barry Blanchard on this list for the “cosy explorer” by the Toronto Star.
A review of Paddlenorth by Conor Mihell at Canoe & Kayak Magazine. “Paddlenorth is compulsively readable…Her prose is lean, raw and inspiring—the hallmarks of great travel writing.”
The Saturday Travel section of the Globe and Mail this week was devoted to travel books. The books editor got together with the travel editor and created a list of the best books to kickstart your wanderlust. Paddlenorth was chosen.
Another book review is up on The Coastal Spectator. This time, I took a journey with Jim Christy through a old tin of memorabilia he has been saving for decades. The book has an interesting form and some great stories, and it makes you think about importance of memories and souvenirs.
Reviewing books is giving me the opportunity to explore new writers and publishers. My review of The Apple House, by Gillian Campbell, appeared on the Coastal Spectator in January, 2013.
