NW Timber History Adventure

by jgirl on Apr 3, 2009

A mystery. What a great way to learn about the lumber industry, from the hillside to the big office players. Include an insightful dose of culture from the Queen Charlotte Islands. Add an eccentric character. My family & I found it captivating & well researched.

Something For Everyone

Not being a fan of historical books I was pleasantly surprised at just how entertaining this story is. While there is a huge amount of information and background on the logging and forest industry in BC the writing is crisp and the tale an intriguing one. John Vaillant has obviously done his homework and presents the results of his research in a straightforward manner, allowing readers in many instances to draw their own conclusions. And he could not have chosen a more intriguing character than Grant Hadwin, a man who objected passionately to the unrestrained destruction of these magnificent forests. While you may strongly disagree with Hadwin's method of protest you can't help but sympathize with the message he was trying to convey. A thoroughly enjoyable, well-written and thought-provoking narrative concerning issues that are just as relevant today .
