What folks are saying about the Humans of Nelson book:

"I loved the HON book...but I already knew I would based on the photos and text I've seen on Facebook. My husband, on the other hand, picked up the book knowing nothing about it and could not put it down. A striking, honest, and compassionate portrait of our unique city and its people. Well done!" - Kristene Perron
"Everyone that I have showed the book absolutely loves it! I also need to purchase more books!" - Danny Faulks
"It's the Christmas stocking stuffer of the year!" - Otter Books
