Yes, it’s that time of year again, and I’m offering signed copies of my two award-winning young-adult, adventure novels for the low sale price of $10.00 (Cdn$ or US$) each. If you have a young person (or an adult for that matter) on your gift list who might be interested in outdoor adventure stories, please consider The Search for Grizzly One and Dog Runner.
“The Search for Grizzly One is a cracking good adventure story set in Canada’s North,” wrote Merna Summers on Amazon.ca. “It was originally intended for young readers, but it contains some of the best writing about northern flying and wilderness life that I have ever encountered. This novel, which deals with the search for a downed plane in bush country, has unexpected twists and turns of plot, and also reverently-rendered links with Native spirituality and mysticism. Adults, as well as young people, should find reading it a rich and rewarding experience. Highly recommended.”
With regard to Dog Runner, the Canadian Book Review Annual (1989) stated, “Throughout this well-written adventure story, Native legends are skilfully interwoven, and Jim’s relationship with his dogs is poignantly portrayed.” And the Calgary Herald (1989) wrote, “Each of the dogs has a distinct, believable personality, and human and animal interactions ring true to life. Dog Runner is a special book.”
