Notable Reviews

“In his new short fiction collection, What I Want To Tell Goes Like This (Nightwood Editions), Matt Rader turns Canada’s collective past into autobiography. Steeped largely in the brooding imagery of the Pacific Northwest, Rader makes the forgotten characters of Vancouver Island’s history his own—from striking coal miners to commune-running Russian religious exiles to cowboys who wandered just a little too far north from Montana. But his ability to capture the complicated pulse of history becomes clear not only while bringing to life those names long confined to archives and sepia-toned photographs. In fact, his writing thrives in describing everyday moments filled by unsaid or insufficient words, whether in bed with a loved one or unexpectedly downing whisky and beer at an airport bar with an old friend.”
~ Maisonneuve, June 10, 2014

“Matt's stories are courageous, wide-ranging, and superbly written.”
~ Madeleine Thien for 49th Shelf, March 27, 2014

Article in Northword Magazine, June/July issue 2014

Notable Reviews

NEW! “Written by Yukon resident Michele Genest, who also authored The Boreal Gourmet, this lush cookbook spans an entire year with a dedicated feast menu for each season...I was surprised, and perhaps a tad relieved, to find the majority of recipes did not require extreme foraging for ingredients. Instead, I found the four feasts leaned toward homey, thoughtful dishes such as morel-crusted bison short ribs and sunflower seed soup.”
~ Kaitlyn Rosenburg, Eat Magazine, August 2014

Michele Genest has long celebrated the wild ingredients of Northern Canada, foraging and creating delicious recipes with which to savour what she’s collected. Now she’s turned to examining how cultures in other northern countries treat the same ingredients. In her new cookbook, “The Boreal Feast: A Culinary Journey Through the North” (Harbour Publishing), she examines and compares the wild ingredients found in the boreal forest from Yukon to Alaska to Scandinavia...Spectacular photos were shot by Cathie Archbould.”
~ Lois Abraham for the Canadian Press, July 2014

“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.”

“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.”

Notable Reviews

“Burnaby writer Diane Tucker's fourth book of poetry, full of everyday yet newly experienced images, conveys strong and universal emotions. Tucker's spare yet always sensual poetry seems to vibrate with her sense of fulfillment, loss and longing.”
~Annie Boulanger, Burnaby Now, June 2014

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.”
~ Quill & Quire, May 2014

“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.”

“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.”

Review in the Coastal Spectator, July 8, 2014

Notable Reviews

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.”
