MARGOT FEDORUK is a writer, book reviewer and entrepreneur, whose work has been published in the Globe and Mail, Quill & Quire, BC BookWorld, Ormbsy Review. Part love story, part survival story, part meditation on family dysfunction, this offbeat memoir chronicles the unpredictable life of a young wife and mother on Gabriola Island. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Margot’s reflections on marriage, motherhood, isolation, food, and family paint an unforgettable portrait of a modern-day woman. (And yes, there are recipes in the book!) Margot still lives on Gabriola Island.

TAMAR GLOUBERMAN is a graduate of the Creative Writing program at UBC and has spent much of her life as an outdoor guide. Having worked in exotic places such as the Galapagos, Zambia and Peru, she is most grateful to enjoy North America’s wild rivers and grizzly bears. The thrilling story of a whitewater guide working on some of the most challenging and remote rafting rivers in North America, from Northern BC to the Grand Canyon and beyond. Driven to guide increasingly dangerous rivers, Tamar overcomes her self-doubts and challenges both on and off the water, using a combination of grit and wit. A raw and honest work from a talented new voice in adventure writing, Tamar’s memoir is a page-turner, transporting readers through wild rapids and breath-taking canyons; she learns from the river that finding self-forgiveness might be the most hard-to-reach destination of all.
