Hancock Lumber president wins national book award

When Hancock Lumber President Kevin Hancock isn’t busy running the sixth-generation family business, or opening yet another retail store, he somehow found time to win a national book award for his 2015 memoir “Not For Sale: Finding Center in the Land of Crazy Horse.”

“Not For Sale” was the winner of the 10th Annual National Indie Excellence Awards leadership category — the book was named as a finalist in the Spirituality category.

“Not For Sale” chronicles Hancock’s search for healing via Pine Ridge, an Oglala Lakota reservation in South Dakota, after being diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia — a disorder that causes spasms in the larynx, for which there is no prevention and no cure. Hancock also details how the $140 million company emerged from the crisis healthier than before.

Founded in 2007, the National Indie Excellence Awards competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters.
