J.B. MacKinnon’s first book, Dead Man in Paradise, won the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-fiction. His book The 100-Mile Diet, co-authored by Alisa Smith, was a national bestseller and inspired a TV series about the small town of Mission, BC that learned to eat locally. MacKinnon presents The Once and Future World: Nature As It Was, As It Is, As It Could Be, which has been shortlisted for the RBC Taylor Prize. The book aims to change the way we see nature and show that in restoring the living world, we are also restoring ourselves.
