Candace Savage Wins Canada’s Largest Non-fiction Prize
She also revels in her encounters with the wild inhabitants of this mysterious land—two coyotes in a ditch at night, their eyes glinting in the dark; a deer at the window; a cougar pussy-footing it through a gully a few minutes' walk from town. But as Savage explores further, she uncovers a darker reality—a story of cruelty and survival set in the still-recent past—and finds that she must reassess the story she grew up with as the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of prairie homesteaders.
Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and imbued with Savage's passion for this place, A Geography of Blood offers both a shocking new version of plains history and an unforgettable portrait of the windswept, shining country of the Cypress Hills, a holy place that helps us remember. Also available in hardcover.

She has done it with wonder, precision, praise and grief , adding to and extending the body of work about this extraordinary place, filling in gaps and providing another point of view. It is a heart-warming, yet incisive work that any reader will find hard to put down. Savage's book provides the best kind of education: you fully enjoy the experience and walk away not only with an alternative view of your reality but an openness to ponder the significance of your newly acquired insight.
In addition to archival research, the author uses oral history and her own experiences to invest the narrative with a great deal of potency. A Geography of Blood is a solid addition to the canon of Prairie literature. Hers is a bittersweet tale of the land and its histories.
