Originally from Germany, Miriam Körner fell in love with Northern Saskatchewan one brutally cold winter morning when she lost her dog team on Bigstone Lake – and shortly after, with the man who rescued her team. Miriam’s critically acclaimed YA novel, Yellow Dog, and her award-winning picture book collaboration, When the Trees Crackle with Cold: pīsimwasinahikan, were both on the top of McNally Robinson’s 2018 bestseller list in the children’s book category. Her latest YA novel, Qaqavii, is her love declaration to the land and people of Canada’s Far North.
