2019 NATIONAL OUTDOOR BOOK AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED

A gripping tale of a kayak voyage across the Pacific.  A consummate biography of the great conservationist George Bird Grinnell. A thought provoking work of natural history which takes readers deep under the earth.  These and more are among the winners of 2019 National Outdoor Books. 

A total of nineteen books were chosen as winners in this year's contest which is now in its twenty-third year.  Sponsors of the program include the National Outdoor Book Awards Foundation, Idaho State University and the Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education.

Awards are presented in ten, often highly competitive, categories. 

One of those categories is Outdoor Literature and the winner of that category is "The Pacific Alone."  Written by Dave Shively, it is the story of kayaker Ed Gillet's audacious attempt to the cross the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii.

"This is truly a great adventure and an absorbing story, " said Ron Watters, the chairman of the National Outdoor Book Awards.  "You'll be there every paddle stroke of the way while Gillet in his small, confined craft takes on the limitless expanse of the Pacific."

The competition among Outdoor Literature entrants was so intense this year that the judges chose "Inner Ranges" as a second winner.  The book is by Geoff Powter and is a collection of Powter's writings over the years. 

"For years, Powter has puzzled over what it is that motivates climbers and mountain explorers," said Watters.  "That in itself makes for fascinating reading, but what sets the book apart from others is Powter's day job.  He's a practicing clinical psychologist which adds a unique approach to his thoughts about those who are drawn to risk and adventure."

The judges were unanimous in their choice of the winner of the Natural History Literature Category giving the award to "Underland:  A Deep Time Journey." Written by Robert Macfarlane, the book is an exploration of hidden worlds:  fungal networks in which trees communicate, caves where the ancients left their art, catacombs of the dead, and a melting Greenland glacier into which Macfarlane descends and is pummeled by water rushing down from above. 

Valerie Cunningham, a Natural History judge from Minneapolis, calls Mafarlane's writing "vivid and soulful."  "This is," said Cunningham, "natural history writing at its very best".

The judges of the History/Biography Category also selected two winners.  One is a biography of the conservationist George Bird Grinnell, and the other is about Wes Skiles, a legendary scuba diver.   

The Grinnell biography entitled "Grinnell: America's Environmental Pioneer" is by John Taliaferro.  Taliafero is the author of several other highly acclaimed biographies, and that experience and skills as a writer came to bear in creating, according to the judges, a "monumental" piece of work about Grinnell. 

"Of the giants of the conservation movement, Grinnell has been the least recognized, " said James Moss, an outdoor industry attorney and judge in the Biography category.   "His work and accomplishments a century ago continue to influence environmental policies to this day."

Julie Hauserman's "Drawn to the Deep" also received top honors in the History/Biography Category.  Wes Skiles, a scuba diver and the subject of Hauserman's book, was known for his exploratory cave dives and innovative underwater photographic work. 

"Julie Hauserman's book is a great read and a wonderful tribute to Skiles,"  said Watters, "You'll find yourself engrossed in the story as she takes you into that hauntingly beautiful underworld that Skiles inhabited."

The winner of the Nature and Environment Category is a book by Krista Schlyer titled "River of Redemption."  In it, Schlyer writes about Washington DC's Anacostia River.  It's a river that has been exploited and abused, but Schlyer nevertheless finds isolated havens of beauty.   

John Miles, a judge and former dean and professor of Environmental Studies at Western Washington University said:  "River of Redemption is a cautionary tale of the dangers facing rivers, but it's also a hopeful book in that through continued efforts of restoration, the river may one day regain its environmental health."

Complete reviews of these and the other 2019 winners may be found at the National Outdoor Book Awards website at:  www.noba-web.org.

Outdoor Literature.  Winner.  The Pacific Alone:  The Untold Story of Kayaking's Boldest Voyage.  By Dave Shively.  Falcon, Guilford, CT.  ISBN 9781493026814

This is one of those absorbing books that is certain to carry you away on an inner voyage of your own.  It is about an audacious attempt by Ed Gillet to cross the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii, a journey that would take at least two months.  His means of travel?  A kayak.  That's right.  A kayak!   Even solo adventurers crossing the ocean in a row boat  have a place to sleep.  But a kayak?  This is truly a great adventure, and outdoor writer and kayaking aficionado Dave Shively is perfect to tell the story.   Does Gillet make it?  You can find out in this first rate chronicle of the journey.

 

Outdoor Literature.  Winner. Inner Ranges: An Anthology of Mountain Thoughts.  By Geoff Powter. Rocky Mountain Books, Victoria, BC.  ISBN9781771602877

Inner Ranges is a collection of writings, the culmination of a lifetime of puzzling over what it is that motivates climbers and mountain explorers. Geoff Powter comes at it from a unique perspective, that of a practicing clinical psychologist.   Included are his own personal stories, opinion pieces, and insightful profiles of notable climbers.  What adds greatly to the book's appeal is that Powter has added commentary, evaluating his past writings in a new light and adding clarity in the passing of the years. 

 

Outdoor Literature.  Honorable Mention.  The Salt Path.  By Raynor Winn.  Penguin Books, New York.  ISBN9780143134114

Lyrical, poignant, and full of heart, Raynor Winn's Salt Path is outdoor writing - or simply any kind of writing - at its very best.  A true story, Raynor and her husband lose their small farm in Wales to creditors and find themselves nearly penniless, without even a place to live.  Then to add to their already overwhelming burdens, her husband of thirty-two years is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With little time left, they decide to embark on a 630-mile trek on a coastal hiking trail in southwest England . . . and then everything changes.  This is a story of  hope, love, and the life-affirming power of living simply in the outdoors.

 

History/Biography.  Winner.  Grinnell: America's Environmental Pioneer and his Restless Drive to Save the West.  By John Taliaferro.  Liveright Publishing, New York.  ISBN 9781631490132

John Taliaferro is the author of several other highly acclaimed biographies, and his skill as a writer is on full display in this consummate work on George Bird Grinnell.  Of all of the giants of the conservation movement, Grinnell is probably the least recognized.  In the late 1800s Grinnell, a zoologist and anthropologist by training, came to realize that the United States was undergoing an alarming decline of birds and other wildlife.  As a consequence, he began writing and editing countless articles arguing for sane conservation policies.  Putting his words into action, he spearheaded the formation of the first Audubon Society, and  along with Theodore Roosevelt, was a founding member of the Boone and Crockett Club, organized for the protection of wildlife habitat.  Based on exhaustive research, Taliaferro synthesizes a vivid portrait of Grinnell, clearly establishing his place in the pantheon of American conservationists.

 

History/Biography.  Winner.  Drawn to the Deep: The Remarkable Underwater Explorations of Wes Skiles.  By Julie Hauserman.  University Press of Florida, Gainesville.  ISBN 9780813056982

In this well-told biography, the life of underwater  pioneer Wes Skiles comes alive.  Wes Skiles was a legendary scuba diver known for his exploratory cave dives and his innovative underwater photography work.  Skiles explored where others had never been before, all the while inventing, innovating, and pushing the limits of what was possible.  His work appeared in national magazines and in over one hundred documentary films. Readable and engrossing, Julie Hauserman's book is an exploration of the man and the hauntingly beautiful underworld that he inhabited. 

 

Nature and the Environment.  Winner.  River of Redemption:  Almanac of Life on the Anacostia.  By Krista Schlyer. Texas A&M University Press.  College Station, TX.  ISBN 9781623496920

The Anacostia River is not a long river.  From its watershed in Maryland, it flows only nine miles before joining the Potomac River in Washington DC.  Although short, it is long on cultural history, and even longer in the lessons to be learned from its checkered environmental past.  River of Redemption is Krista Schlyer's moving, personal story of the river, a story she spent seven years photographing and even longer in exploring its natural world.  It's a river which has been exploited and abused; yet despite all that it has suffered, Schlyer still finds isolated havens of beauty.  While those havens are few to be found, Schlyer expresses hope that through continued efforts of restoration, the river may one day regain its former glory as a healthy, thriving ecosystem.

 

Natural History Literature.  Winner.  Underland: A Deep Time Journey.  By Robert Macfarlane.  W. W. Norton, New York.  ISBN 9780393242140

In this extraordinary book, Robert Macfarlane guides us on a journey downward through layers of soil where roots anchor trees and plants, and down further through bedrock and into caves where thousands of years ago the ancients left their art.  Macfarlane relates one amazing story after another in vivid, soulful language, describing hidden worlds beneath our feet.  Compelling and thought provoking, this is natural history writing at its best.

 

Natural History Literature.  Honorable Mention.  The Secret Wisdom of Nature: Trees, Animals, and the Extraordinary Balance of All Living Things.  By Peter Wohlleben.  Greystone Books, Vancouver.  ISBN 9781771643887

Reading The Secret Wisdom of Nature is like having an informal chat with Peter Wohlleben, ambling along, on a stroll through the woods near his home.  There is an intimacy about this book, a relaxed personal touch about his deliberations on the subject of ecology. Using examples and the results of research from North America, Europe and other locales, he poses a series of questions.  Using simple and understandable language, he answers them, painting the study of ecology with an entirely new palette of colors.

 

Natural History Literature.  Honorable Mention.  This Land:  How Cowboys, Capitalism, and Corruption are Ruining the American West.  By Christopher Ketcham.  Viking, New York.  ISBN 9780735220980

The 450 million acres of public land in the western United States  are under assault like no other time in history.  Christopher Ketcham who has been reporting on public land issues for over a decade, pulls no punches as he documents how influence peddlers, government policy and mismanagement are causing irreparable damage to these lands.   Often approaching it on a personal level, Ketcham interviews those on the front lines whose lives are thrown into turmoil.  Raw and unrestrained, Ketcham's work goes to the heart of this increasingly virulent national crisis.

 

Design & Artistic Merit.  Winner.  The Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim.  Photographs and Text by Pete McBride.  Design by Susi Oberhelman.  Rizzoli International Publications, New York.  ISBN 9780847863044

This large format book is more than a collection of beautiful photographs - although, it certainly is that - rather it is a moving, visual story of an amazing 750-mile hike from one end of the Grand Canyon to the other.  Photographer Pete McBride and fellow companion Kevin Fedarko did it the hard way:  traveling off-trail, searching out weaknesses in the canyon walls: thin, airy ledges, faint wildlife trails, and zigzagging through sweltering boulder fields.  This is a real treat: an inspiring adventure and superb photography all rolled into one colorful and marvelous work of art.

 

Children's Category.  Winner. 101 Outdoor Adventures to Have Before You Grow Up.  By Stacy and Jack Tornio.  FalconGuides.  Lanham, MD.  ISBN 9781493041404

This wonderful book is full of inspiring things for children to do outdoors.  See an endangered species.  Identify animal tracks.  Go stargazing in the middle of nowhere.  Go on an amazing day hike.  Skip a rock across the water at least 10 times.  Oriented to the 8-12 age group, authors Stacy and Jack Tornio offer five easy steps to accomplish each of the activities covered in the book.  One fun fact about the authors is that Jack Tornio is Stacy's teenage son.   Throughout the book, Jack adds a kid's perspective, offering tips on making each of the activities more enjoyable.

 

Children's Category.  Winner.  Wildheart: The Daring Adventures of John Muir.  By Julie Bertagna.  Illustrated by William Goldsmith.  Yosemite Conservancy, El Portal, CA.  ISBN 9781930238947

Wildheart is a biography for children about the great outdoorsman and conservationist, John Muir.  The story is told through John's eyes beginning with his boyhood in Scotland and then moving to the wild lands of America.  In 1868, he makes it to California and immediately sets out on a hike across the Central Valley which he finds filled with a carpet of flowers, the colors of a rainbow.  Later, he travels to Alaska to study glaciers, and it is there that he and his dog Stikeen have an unforgettable adventure.   The book is done using a series of pictures and scenes on each page, in comic book style, perfect for keeping a child's interest and for moving the story along.  Age group:  9-12 years old.

 

Children's Category.  Honorable Mention.  The Lost Forest.  By Phyllis Root.  Illustrations by Betsy Bowen. University of Minnesota Press.  Minneapolis.  ISBN 9780816697960

Many years ago, surveyors in Minnesota made a mistake in their map making and placed a lake in the middle of what was really an old growth forest.  For more than seventy-five years, the mistake stayed on maps, and the ancient timber on the site remained safe from logging.  Along with Betsy Bowen's sumptuous illustrations, author Phyllis Root  tells the story of the lost forest and its eventual preservation as one of the last and largest stands of virgin timber in Minnesota.  Age group: 4-9 years old.

 

Outdoor Classic. Winner.  Mammal Tracks and Sign: A Guide to North American Species.  By Mark Elbroch and Casey McFarland.  Stackpole Books, Guilford, CT.  ISBN  9780811737746

In its relatively short life, Mark Elbroch's guidebook about mammal tracks has become a classic.   It is, after all, the most comprehensive guide available on the topic, eminently useable and filled with hundreds of photos and illustrations.  In addition to visual and textual material on how to recognize tracks, Elbroch includes other clues helpful in making an accurate identification including scat, urine, ground and plant signs.

 

Instructional.  Winner.  Training for the Uphill Athlete: A Manual for Mountain Runners and Ski Mountaineers.  By Steve House, Scott Johnston and Kilian Jornet.  Patagonia Books, Ventura, CA.  ISBN 9781938340840

If you are a trail runner or competitive ski mountaineer, you can't go wrong with this highly graphic and beautifully designed training manual.  Based on the latest scientific work, the book helps you create your own training plans and work-outs.  Full of helpful suggestions, and authored by noted endurance experts and athletes, this is one of the finest training manuals available, bar none.

 

Nature Guidebooks.  Winner.  Field Guide to the Flower Flies of Northeastern North America.  By Jeffrey H. Skevington and Michelle M. Locke. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ.  ISBN9780691189406

First things first:  flower flies or hover flies are not bees or wasps.  Yes, they are pollinators, and yes, they have similar markings to bees - which serves them well as a form of protection from potential predators - but that's where the similarity ends.  They have two wings.  Bees and wasps have four.   Moreover, flower flies haven't had the sort of guidebook attention that bees have had.  Until, that is, the arrival of this book, the first comprehensive guide to flower flies.  With plenty of photographs, a smart lay-out, and clear textual material, it does the job and does it well.

 

Nature Guidebooks.  Winner.  Wildflowers of the Atlantic Southeast.  By Laura Cotterman, Damon Waitt and Alan Weakley.  Timber Press, Portland, OR.  ISBN 9781604697605

If you live in the Southeast, you can't go wrong with this new and exceptionally well-done guide to the region's wildflowers.  You barely have to open the book and you know where to start looking to identify a flower that you've found.  The entire right hand margin of each page is colored.  Match the flower's color to page color and you're in the ballpark.  Additionally, the authors have devised a simple key which consists of six steps, each step leading you closer to the flower at hand.   It's all there:  intelligent design, well-honed descriptions, and crisp color photographs of the 1200 species covered by the book.

 

Outdoor Adventure Guides.  Winner.  Sierra Summits: A Guide to Fifty Peak Experiences in California's Range of Light.  By Matt Johanson.  Falcon Guides.  Guilford, CT.  ISBN 9781493036448

Sierra Summits takes a different approach than many climbing guidebooks.  In fact, it's not really for climbers.  It's for non-climbers.  No ropes or climbing equipment needed.  No overnight bivouacs on icy ledges required.   All of the fifty summits described in the book can be reached by hiking, and they can be done in a single day.   Areas covered by the book include Tahoe, Central Sierra, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Eastern Sierra.

 

Outdoor Adventure Guides.  Honorable Mention.  150 Nature Hot Spots in California:  The Best Parks, Conservation Areas and Wild Places.  By Ann Marie Brown.  Firefly Books.  Richmond Hill, ON.  ISBN 9780228101680

This beautifully designed and photographed book features some of California's finest natural areas.  Covered in the book are national and state parks, natural reserves, national monuments and other recreation sites.  All of the state is included from the snow-draped slopes of Mt. Shasta in the north to the Joshua tree landscapes of the south.
