Canada Reads NXNW contest winners

We're celebrating great writing on NXNW as part of this year's Canada Reads battle of the books. This year, two of the five books are from B.C., John Valliant's The Tiger and Carmen Aguirres's Something Fierce.

We asked, and boy did we receive! You flooded us with fantastic true stories about your encounters with animals or a time when you experienced personal danger.

We have our six winning stories to share, here they are! Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who wrote in.
