Notable Reviews

NEW! “Genest’s second book, The Boreal Feast: A Culinary Journey Through The North, extends the scope of her first by tying the cuisine of the Canadian North with that of Northern Scandinavia, where she traveled extensively in search of connections between our cultures. The book is organized around a series of feasts inspired by her life in Whitehorse and her journeys through Norway, Sweden and Finland, including a meal based on a dinner at Fäviken Magasinet with chef Magnus Nilsson. Why, one wonders, as one leafs through this beautifully produced cookbook, alternating between bright food shots of berries and salmon and landscape shot replete with reindeer or caribou, didn’t anyone in Canada make this connection before?”
~ Malcolm Jolley for the Good Food Revolution blog, July 2014

“Michele Genest’s recently-published cookbook The Boreal Feast, is a gorgeous tribute to the food of the North – not only Canada, but other nations that are home to boreal forests. She worked with chefs, foragers and food producers familiar to her as a longtime resident of Whitehorse, as well as new collaborators whom she met in Norway, Finland and Sweden. Coupled with her first, award-winning book The Boreal Gourmet, Michele’s work is a marvelous contribution to chronicling the unique foods and culinary traditions of northern dwellers.”
~ Paula Roy for the Constantly Cooking blog, July 2014

The Boreal Feast is not only a cookbook, but a travelogue as well—making it a book well worth sitting down with on a Saturday afternoon to read from cover to cover. Genest is warm in personality and easily portrays her love for northern living in her stories...Don’t miss out on your chance to experience what the North has to offer!”
~Ottawa Life Magazine online, June 2014

“The book is a stunner. An absolute feast for the eyes. With photographs by Cathie Archbould and illustrations by Laurel Parry, Genest brings us the bounty of the north, of the north she knows intimately, and the new norths and its people she has come to know. Part travelogue, part adventure tale, part love story and lament, The Boreal Feast is a recipe collection and storybook that no good Canadian should be without.”

Notable Reviews

“Filled with humour, frustration, joy, honesty, and insight, and just entertaining.”
~ Craig Orr, Ex. Director of Watershed Watch Salmon Society

“If fish could sing, they'd surely croon many a good tune for retired fishery officer Randy Nelson… 

Delivered in Nelson's light-hearted and entertaining way, it offers the reader a rare glimpse into the serious business of wildlife protection, and the sometimes frustrating bureaucracy within the federal fisheries department.”
~ Kristian Secher, The Tyee

“It’s entertaining reading: sometimes humorous, sometimes frustrating, sometimes frightening and sometimes sobering.”

Review in June 15th edition of Kirkus Reviews (Cloudwalker)

Notable Reviews

“Illustrated by the much-honoured and beloved artist Roy Henry Vickers, Cloudwalker is a visually glorious book. Vickers and oral historian Robert Budd joined forces on last year’s lauded Raven Brings the Light, and with this follow-up—part of a series retelling First Nations legends of the Pacific Northwes—the duo once again uses a human character’s supernatural experiences to explain the origin of a natural element…
“A picture book, an ecologically minded adaptation of a traditional legend, and an art book all in one, Cloudwalker can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.”

Notable Review

“In addition to the stunning food photography and shots of Vancouver Island’s best ocean coves, Sea Salt gives thanks to the growers and producers of local products. If you’re a lover of this beautiful island we call home, you’ll surely enjoy Sea Salt.”
~ Kaitlyn Rosenburg for Eat Magazine, June 2014

“This stunning addition to the galley library is at once beautiful to look at and a thoroughly practical guide to cooking and dining aboard with a focus on fresh West Coast ingredients. Even before you browse the recipes, the food photography by Christina Symons will make your mouth water!”

Notable Reviews

“Rhodes dismisses the entire academic class of Canuck bards who look to Europe or Asia for their tutelage rather than face our “native” heritage of oppression…. I admire the radical sport of Rhodes’ lyrics and I admit my total support of his politics…Rhodes takes us down twisty, dangerous roads — of conscience and consciousness, forcing us to recognize the sins of our Confederation.”

Jay Ruzesky

In Antarctica: An Amundsen Pilgrimage
978-0-88971-282-9, $24.95, Paperback, Nightwood Editions

Print/Online
NEW! Review in the Coastal Spectator, July 8, 2014

Notable Reviews

NEW!In Antarctica is a beautiful melding of the personal and the public, the past and the present, research and emotion. Ruzesky presents the facts of Amundsen’s life and work, yet also captures Amundsen’s dreams and despairs. Just as Amundsen was foiled in his goal of being the first man to reach the North Pole and had to change plans, so Ruzesky also failed follow exactly in Amundsen’s footsteps and reach the Pole. Both men adapted, doing what they were able to do, and creating compelling stories in the process.”

Notable Reviews

“Vancouver media man Ed Willes has a cool new book out if you love the CFL. Called End Zones/Border Wars, Willes writes about the era of U.S. expansion in the CFL. It was, ultimately, a disaster, but also one of the more fascinating chapters in CFL history.”
~Damian Cox, Toronto Star

“The book was closed long ago on the CFL's American experiment. An entertaining new book by Ed Willes brings it back to life.”
~Rob Vanstone, Regina Leader-Post
