THE GOLDEN SPRUCE: A TRUE STORY OF MYTH, MADNESS AND GREED [British Columbia] John Valliant 2005 Paperback Fine

Price: $19.95

Detailed Product Description
New York, WW Norton & Co, 2005. 255 pp, b/w photos. Used paperback. Fine. 

When a shattered kayak and camping gear are found on an uninhabited island in the Pacific Northwest, they reignite a mystery surrounding a shocking act of protest. Five months earlier, logger-turned-activist Grant Hadwin had plunged naked into a river in British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Islands, towing a chainsaw. When his night's work was done, a unique Sitka spruce, 165 feet tall and covered with luminous golden needles, teetered on its stump. Two days later it fell. As vividly as John Krakauer puts readers on Everest, John Vaillant takes us into the heart of North America's last great forest.
