New Arrival - Local author George Mercer's new book Dyed In The Green ($19.99)
George Mercer is a former Gulf Islands National Park Warden and Vancouver Island-based author with a new novel titled "Dyed In The Green". George was the winner of this year's Saanich Peninsula Community Writing Contest for fiction, although for a different short story submission. "Dyed In The Green" is part of a six book series about national park wardens and their exploits with poachers, developers and bureaucrats. Initially set in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the "Dyed In The Green" series will follow main character Ben Matthews, across Canada with the second book set in Wood Buffalo National Park (northern Alberta and the NWT) and the third and fourth books alternating between Jasper National Park and an African national park. Book Five is based in British Columbia's Southern Gulf Islands and the final book in the series will come full circle and end in Newfoundland. These books are works of fiction with elements of mystery and suspense, set in some of our country's most iconic special places.
