Lin Pardey’s Bull Canyon a WILLA Cather Literary Award Finalist

Internationally famous with her husband Larry for their sailing adventures and expertise, Lin Pardey turns here to an adventure on land – the four years that the couple spent far from the sea, building the boat of their dreams in California’s remote Bull Canyon. First there were the rats in the pantry, then the floods, then the fires and the visiting cougar. Life in Bull Canyon was daunting and dangerous. Often Lin wondered just what in the world they were doing so far from their customary home on the open seas. Bull Canyon joins the canon of great tales of homesteading, told in the warm, funny, and insightful voice of a true storyteller.

Now, the editors at Amazon Kindle have chosen Bull Canyon, a Boatbuilder, a Writer and Other Wildlife for their monthly 100 recommended ebooks list.

They have reduced the price of the eBook to just $2.99 until January 31st when it returns to the normal price of $9.99. Their reason for choosing the book was not only the warm reviews it received but the fact that it was one of two finalists for the WILLA Cather Literary Award in Creative Non-Fiction.
