According to the NOBA press release, “Butler and Myers do wonders with this book, taking what seems at first glance a prosaic subject, and fashioning it into a fascinating portrait of a man hopelessly addicted to a place.”
Grand Obsession adds the NOBA award a growing list of honors that includes a 2007 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) in the Mountain West/Best Non-Fiction category.
“This is a great honor, both for the authors and the legacy of Harvey Butchart,” said author Tom Myers. “We are grateful to be selected as recipients of this prestigious award.”
