Author Charlotte Gill wins BC National Award for Non-Fiction!

Charlotte Gill spent two decades in the back woods of British Columbia, mostly bent over, shovel in hand, planting tree seedlings. She was one of the army of tree planters who head into the bush every season in this province and in other parts of the country. Charlotte has captured the essence of her years as a planter in her memoir Eating Dirt.  It's a story filled with dirt, discomfort, insects and hard work and with Charlotte's passion for the whole experience! 

Congratulations to Charlotte Gill for the big win!  Seems like all that back breaking labour is paying off!
