Notice biographique

Jake MacDonald was born in Winnipeg in 1949 and received his B.A. in English from the University of Manitoba in 1971. He supported himself as a carpenter and fishing guide for several years before embarking on a career as a writer that spans more than three decades. He is the author of eight critically acclaimed books, both fictional and non-fictional. He has written several hundred articles and received many awards for his work. MacDonald was the recipient of the Greg Clark Award for best outdoor article in Canada in 1990. He was awarded the National Magazine Award for journalism in 1996 and won the same award for travel writing four years later. His 2002 book, Houseboat Chronicles, won three awards including the prestigious Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction.
