The Nautilus Book Awards recognize books that transcend barriers of culture, gender, race, and class, and promote conscious living, green values, spiritual growth, wellness and vitality, and positive social change.

We’re thrilled to announce that four recent Mountaineers Books / Braided River titles have been honored with Nautilus medals:

“At Mountaineers Books, we take pride in crafting books that inspire people to live happier, healthier lives connected to the natural world,” notes editor-in-chief Kate Rogers, “Our authors dedicate so much of their time and energy to bringing great books into the world and we could not be more proud of them.”

“The Nautilus program celebrates books that inspire and connect our lives as individuals, communities and global citizens,” said awards director Mary Belknap.

The books honored this year illustrate the range of Mountaineers Books in terms of subject matter and approach. We Are the Arctic celebrates the significance of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and eloquently advocates for its preservation through the voice of 24 different essayists from all walks of life. Turning Homeward blends the natural history of Puget Sound and the tangled issues around urban renewal and river restoration with Adrienne Scanlan's personal story of feeling a sense of belonging in the Pacific Northwest. My Old Man and the Mountain offers a personal account of living up to a legendary father’s legacy and climbing in the Himalayas. Where Water is Gold is a “photo ethnography” of Bristol Bay, highlighting the place, its people and their way of life.

In 2016, publishers from 36 U.S. states and 12 other nations offered titles for Nautilus consideration.  The books they honor are dedicated to excellence and high standards of both message and presentation.
