BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction Longlist. . .

Nope, we're not through with prizes yet.  This is the largest prize for Canadian non-fiction ($40,000 to the winner) and it's quite an ecclectic list.  I'm thrilled to see Tom Jokinen and Molly Peacock on it. Here are the books that made the longlist:


On the Farm: Robert William Pickton and the Tragic Story of Vancouver's Missing Women by Stevie Cameron
Extraordinary Canadians: Marshall McLuhan by Douglas Coupland
What Disturbs Our Blood: A Son's Quest to Redeem the Past by James Fitzgerald
Sunray: The Death and Life of Captain Nichola Goddard by Valerie Fortney
Mordecai: The Life & Times by Charles Foran
Gold Digger: Striking It Rich In the Klondike by Charlotte Gray

The Paper Garden: Mrs. Delaney Begins Her Lifes Work at 72 by Molly Peacock
The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant
The Wave: In the Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean by Susan Casey
