Awards and More for The Big Burn
Tim Egan’s gripping book The Big Burn, now available in paperback, has been garnering national and regional notice. The book recently won the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association Book Award for Adult Nonfiction as well as the Washington State Book Award for History/Biography. The paperback edition, out last month from Mariner Books, hit #14 on the NYT paperback bestseller list.
The Big Burn also made strong appearances on many of our favorite indie bestseller lists, including #1 on the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association list, #3 on both the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association and the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association lists, and #7 on the Heartland Indie Bestseller List.
