Prairie Heritage Book Award: 2013-2014

April 25, 2013

The Jan Garton Prairie Heritage Book Award, of $1000 plus a sponsored reading and booksigning, will be given to an author’s first book on the heritage of America’s mid-continental prairies, whether of the tall-grass, mid-grass, or short-grass regions. Books may be in any genre, and topics may include but are not limited to social or natural history; prairie culture of the past or in-the-making; and interactions between society and ecology.

 

From its founding, Prairie Heritage Institute, Inc. has had a special focus on the African-American settlements of the Flint Hills of Kansas; therefore, books illuminating non-European prairie heritage are especially welcome. Also encouraged are books that confront the question of prairie ways of life—how denizens of the prairie, human and non-human, have lived or can live together without the destruction and exterminations that have characterized the past.

 

Books published in 2013 or 2014 are eligible.  There is no application fee.  

 

Publishers, authors, or readers may nominate a book by sending a copy to:
