      Description

      More than 100 wildly delicious recipes that use North America’s original red meat, from bison rancher and award-winning food writer Jennifer Bain.

      Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison is the first comprehensive contemporary bison cookbook for a general North American market. With more than 100 well-tested, delectable recipes, Bain ensures that you’ll have plenty of culinary inspiration for every cut of bison.

      Recipes include Bison + Cheddar Biscuits, Quinoa + Kale Bison Soup, Maple-Whisky Bison Burgers, Southwestern Braised Bison Short Ribs, Pan-Fried Bison Liver with Dijon-Shallot Cream Sauce, and many more.

      Bison are primarily grass-fed as well as hormone and antibiotic free. And their meat is naturally lean and high in protein, iron, and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

      In Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison, you’ll also meet prominent bison ranchers from all over the United States and Canada who share their rowdy and riotous adventures. They champion “ethical carnivorism”: meeting what you eat, caring about how an animal is raised, and being respectful enough to eat every available part.

      The Test Kitchen at Canadian Living was inspired by Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison to try a few recipes.

Someone in the Test Kitchen evenreferred to it as 'a stampede of flavour.'" —Canadian Living (includes recipe)


      Metro Daily News featured the recipe for Karen's Flying D Chili, a favourite from Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison.


      The Toronto Star shared an excerpt and recipes from Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison.


      "Each palate pleasing, appetite satisfying bison meat recipe is thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly.' A unique and original specialty cookbook, Buffalo Girl Cooks Bison will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, professional, family, and community library cookbook collections." —Midwest Book Review


      The Buffalo Girl provides some background on the animal that inspired her and shares a delicious recipe in a guest post for Slow Food USA.


      Jennifer Bain addresses the buffalo/bison name debate and how delicious it is, no matter what you call it, in a guest post for Slow Food in Canada.


      "Reviewing the 100-plus recipes in this photo-rich 240-page book, it’s clear that [Bain] has discovered delicious ways to cook [bison] ... she has smartly divided the book into user-friendly chapters dedicated to [specific cuts] and provides dishes for every season." —Times Colonist


      Buffalo Girl Jennifer Bain is featured in a Country Guide article that touches on her Saucy Lady column, her cookbook, and her test kitchen at the Toronto Star."


      "This book makes for a fascinating read – it’s a cookbook you will have a hard time putting down. Parts of it read like an adventure story, parts of it like a history book. The recipes are more than just recipes – they are tributes to a majestic animal that deserves more 'air time' in the kitchens of Canada...Bain has done herself and her herd proud in producing this guide to all things bison." —RecipeGeek.com

Cait, Bud, a corpse, and ten possible murderers are trapped in the luxurious restaurant for twelve deadly hours. The bodies pile up, the tension mounts, the list of suspects dwindles—and Cait knows she has to work out who the killer is because there’s no telling who might be next to die.

      "The Corpse with the Platinum Hair is a classic-style (no CSI forensics available), yet modern day (brilliant use of an electronic shutdown) locked room whodunit. As we meet the trapped suspects and the deceased through the inquiry by Cait and her sidekick, readers will relish this wonderful investigation by the dynamic Canadian couple." —Harriet Klausner, #1 Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

      "Another gripping and entertaining page turner from Malcolm Island's environmental mystery master. Thoroughly enjoyable but with a disturbing ring of truth." —Claire Trevena, MLA for North Island, BC


      "A great story . . . Burrows draws from his own experience and much of the narrative is based on historical truths. The betrayals he refers to are not far from the reality many of us lived, out on the water plying our trade." —Des Nobels, commercial fisherman


      "A great read. Fun, smart, offbeat, and weirdly real." —Tzeporah Berman, Canadian environmental activist


      "If you care about British Columbia, have a sense of humour and adventure, and a little bit of irony, this book is for you. Great characters living large, and close enough to the truth to be scary." —Bruce Hill, Project Director at Headwaters Initiative


      "Writing in the style of an old-school, hardboiled detective tale set in the modern day, Burrows weaves a tale of love and loss, of friendship and fierce loyalty, and of corruption, conspiracy, and, yes, betrayal in the halls of power ... The Fourth Betrayal is not about a destination. It's about a journey, populated by colourful characters and dialogue, that may determine what the futurre holds for all of us. And it's defnitely a ride worth hopping abroad." —North Island Gazette


      "The quick pace and multiple plot twists will keep readers guessing right up to the last chapter." —BC Books for BC Schools

      Description

      Silas Pearson is plagued by nightmares. In them, his wife, Penelope, who has now been missing for four years, shows him where murder victims are buried across the Colorado Plateau. One such dream leads him to the Atlas Mill tailings site, outside Moab, Utah. There, Silas discovers the corpse of anti-uranium-mining activist Jane Vaughn, who went missing from Flagstaff, Arizona, buried in radioactive waste. Trying to connect the murder with the disappearance of his wife, who was friends with Vaughn, Silas travels across the Southwest to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. He confronts a host of suspects who wanted Jane Vaughn dead and who believed Penelope, too, was interfering with progress on the plateau. All the while, Silas’s nightmares, threaded with snatches of prose from the writings of Edward Abbey, seem to be leading him to some final confrontation—but with what?

      This is the second book in the Red Rock Canyon Mysteries, all of which are set in the American Southwest—around Arches, Canyonlands, and Grand Canyon National Parks, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

      "Legault’s character development and landscape depiction is exquisite, completely immersing you in the heat and dust and sights and smells of the desert. His plotting has become more intricate and enticing with each book . . . and Black Sun Descending . . . leaves us with one crime still unsolved, Penelope’s whereabouts still unknown, and a hunger for the final book to reveal all.." —Rocky Mountain Outlook


      "A superbly crafted mystery from beginning to end, Black Sun Descending… continue[s] to document Stephen Legault's total mastery of the genre . . . Replete with unexpected twists and surprising turns, it is very highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review


      "Black Sun Descending reminds us of something that too many people have either forgotten, or never known in the first place: Decades of uranium mining in the desert Southwest not only poisoned the Navajo Reservation, but also despoiled the Grand Canyon ... Given its real-life backdrop, this environmentally conscious mystery is both educational and intriguing, and Pearson’s search for his wife’s body is emotionally affecting." —Mystery Scene Magazine

      "With an unexpected shocker and a reluctant amateur sleuth, Martini Regrets is a fantastic crime drama." —Harriet Klausner, #1 Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer


      "If you like your crime to be entertaining as well as tense then Phyllis Smallman’s Sherri Travis series is for you. The central character is feisty, brave to the point of crazy and never one to keep her own counsel as well as being immensely likeable." —Susan Mangan, CrimeFictionLover blog


      "It’s impossible not to like Sherri, even while lamenting her devil-may-care attitude toward the many threats in her life, and marveling at her often-incredulous life decisions. Beyond the pull of character, though, is Smallman’s writing, which has gotten better and better. She is one of a handful of writers whose skill defies you to put down their books unfinished." —Jim Napier, Deadly Diversions


      "This is by and far the best [book by Phyllis Smallman] I've read to date. All her novels show professional control over the devices such as plotting, description and dialogue, but [Martini Regrets] simply took a good story line and rode it to a great ending. This should be a breakthrough work for her ... Excellent dialogue, great use of description and pacing." —Don Graves, Canadian Mystery reviews

      "A gripping adventure in the grand tradition of sea sagas, Mackay takes us one hundred fathoms deep into the life–and–death reality of submarine warfare. Terror on the Alert had me holding my breath and compulsively turning the pages." —Ian Weir, author of Will Starling and Daniel O'Thunder


      "Mackay has woven a gripping yarn with his crisp prose and talent for description. His characters are well developed. He is a master of contextual integrity that sets the plot neatly in time and place. Sailors and naval enthusiasts will appreciate the technical accuracy in every aspect of the narrative ... Terror on the Alert is a rollicking good read in the best traditions of sea stories. " —Lead & Line, newsletter of the Naval Officers' Association of Vancouver Island


      "I found [Terror on the Alert] difficult to put down . . . [Robert] writes with the authority of a naval officer who has lived and worked in the world of the submariner . . .

      Description

      Although Arctic explorer and Hudson Bay Company surveyor John Rae (1813–1893) travelled and recorded the final uncharted sections of the Northwest Passage, he is best known for his controversial discovery of the fate of the lost Franklin Expedition of 1845. Based on evidence given to him by local Inuit, Rae determined that Franklin’s crew had resorted to cannibalism in their final, desperate days. Seen as maligning a national hero, Rae was shunned by British society.

      This collection of personal correspondence—reissued here for the first time since its original publication in 1953—illuminates the details of Rae’s expeditions through his own words. The letters offer a glimpse into Rae’s daily life, his ideas, musings, and troubles. Prefaced by the original, thorough introduction detailing his early life, John Rae’s Arctic Correspondence is a crucial resource for any Arctic enthusiast.

      This new edition features a foreword by researcher and Arctic enthusiast Ken McGoogan, the award-winning author of eleven books, including Fatal Passage: The Untold Story of John Rae (HarperCollins, 2002).

      Bio

      John Rae was a Scottish doctor and explorer born on September 30, 1813, in Orkney. As a child, he enjoyed sailing, climbing, hunting, and fishing—skills that would serve him well in his future exploits. In 1833, shortly after graduating from medical school, Rae was appointed surgeon of the Prince of Wales, a Hudson's Bay Company ship. He had great respect for the peoples native to northern Canada and adopted many of their survival skills. He learned to hunt caribou, store meat, construct shelter, and walk using snowshoes. He was particularly known for this last skill, once walking 1,200 miles in snowshoes through winter forest in order to learn how to survey.

      Rae embarked on his first expedition in 1846. Over the next decade, he explored much of northern Canada's coastline and, in fact, discovered the final link in the Northwest Passage. However, his achievements have gone largely unrecognized due to the discovery he made in 1854. While exploring the Boothia Peninsula, Rae obtained the first information about the fate of the Franklin expedition, which had been missing since 1845. He met a group of Inuit who claimed to have seen the missing men four years earlier. Through their reports, Rae concluded that the last survivors of the Franklin expedition had resorted to cannibalism, before perishing in 1850.

      John Rae retired from the Hudson's Bay Company in 1856 but retained his love of exploration. In 1860, he was hired to explore Iceland and Greenland in an effort to establish a telegraph line to America. And in 1884, at the age of seventy-one, he was hired by the HBC to survey another telegraph route, in the west of Canada, from Red River to Victoria.

      John Rae died in London on July 22, 1893. He was the only major explorer of his time not to receive a knighthood.



      The award-winning author of ten books, Ken McGoogan is best known for Fatal Passage: The Untold Story of John Rae, the Arctic Explorer Who Discovered the Fate of Franklin. That work won the Drainie-Taylor Biography Prize, the CAA History Award, and an American Christopher Award for "a work of artistic excellence that affirms the highest values of the human spirit." With his related book, Lady Franklin's Revenge, Ken added the UBC Medal for Canadian Biography and the Pierre Berton Award for History. He writes a column for Canada's History magazine, recently published How the Scots Invented Canada, and teaches a creative non-fiction course through the University of Toronto and the New York Times Knowledge Network. Ken also makes a cameo appearance in the acclaimed docudrama Passage, which is based on Fatal Passage. Please visit kenmcgoogan.blogspot.com.

      Description

      Canada’s most opinionated dog is reunited with her adoring readers in this handsome tenth-anniversary edition of TouchWood Editions’ bestselling title.

      It was ten years ago that this charming book first stole the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. Written from the point of view of Lonesome, a lovable dog of great intellect and character, Lonesome regales the reader with tales and observations of life in the wild.

      Named after the remote Lonesome Lake in British Columbia’s Tweedsmuir Park, Lonesome was a first-rate companion to her human—obedient, mannerly, and brave, yet occasionally cynical—although she did not share her human’s love of the wilderness and would have preferred life in the suburbs.

      Following in the tradition of classics like Old Yeller and The Incredible Journey, Lonesome’s charming, humorous, and utterly engaging memoir embodies the undeniable love and inevitable differences between a special dog and her human companion.

      With over 20,000 copies sold, TouchWood Editions is introducing this new anniversary edition so that Lonesome’s story can be enjoyed by a new generation of readers.
