Thirteen reasons to look forward to Spring 2013!

Posted: 2013-01-01

Harbour Publishing is pleased to announce our Spring 2013 list, with titles on cooking, gardening, fishing, First Nations art, as well humour, memoir, poetry and nature.

Get ready for a culinary sailing adventure with 100+ fresh recipes showcasing local ingredients and creative flavours. Sea Salt: Recipes from the West Coast Galley, by Alison Malone Eathorne, Hilary Malone & Lorna Malone, is a gorgeous new collection of over a hundred sea-tested gourmet recipes suitable for meals aboard but equally satisfying for the home dining table.

Just in time for gardening season, West Coast plant expert Wim Vander Zalm offers down-to-earth advice to gardeners of all levels in his new book, Just Ask Wim!

Harbour is excited to be offering two First Nations art titles this Spring, with the children’s book Raven Brings the Light by renowned carver, painter and printmaker Roy Henry Vickers (with Rob Budd) and the Bill Reid Art Gallery title Carrying On “Irregardless”: Humour in Contemporary Northwest Coast Art.

Another exciting recent acquisition is Free Magic Secrets Revealed, a mirthful (and magical) coming-of-age story by Vancouver author, playright and journalist Mark Leiren-Young. Leiren-Young’s bestselling Never Shoot a Stampede Queen won the 2009 Leacock Medal for Humour.

Keeping true to Harbour’s tradition of producing quality British Columbia regional history are two titles sure to become West Coast classics: House Calls by Float Plane: Stories of a West Coast Doctor by Dr. Alan Swan  and Fishing the Coast: A Life on the Water by by well-known fisherman and industry analyst Dr. Don Pepper.

Dog lovers can look forward to Tails Don’t Lie: A Decade of Dog Cartoons by Adrian Raeside, with a charming assortment of canine characters, gleaned from ten years of Raeside’s dogged observations in the comic strip The Other Coast.

Poet Russell Thornton’s much-anticipated new collection Birds, Metals, Stones and Rain will be available in February.

Four new additions to the brochure field guide series are also planned, with A Field Guide to Medicinal Wild Plants of Canada by Beverley Gray; A Field Guide to Birds of the Pacific Northwest by Tony Greenfield with photographs by Penny Hall; A Field Guide to Wildlife of the Rocky Mountains by Hälle Flygare; as well as a French translation of the bestselling Field Guide to the Identification of Pebbles by Eileen Vander Flier Keller.
