Saskatchewan author Candace Savage's book about a lesser-known chapter of prairie settlement history has won the $60,000 Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction.
Her book, A Geography of Blood: Unearthing Memory from a Prairie Landscape, beat out four finalists yesterday.
The Alberta-born Savage, who splits her time between Saskatoon and Eastend, has written dozens of books and essays.
She also sits on the Saskatchewan board of the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
