Whistler Reads: THE GOLDEN SPRUCE

abstract:The golden spruce was a three hundred year-old living monument and arboreal miracle. In 1997 it was tragically cut down by an eco-terrorist, whose identity it emerged was a handsome, increasingly disturbed professional forester by the name of Grant Hadwin. The tree was revered by the Haida First Nations, and had become a destination the world over for people fascinated by its unique, golden beauty. This is the story of a man, a tree, a culture and a primary economy of the Pacific Northwest. This book is a must read for anyone interested in BC.

Whistler Reads hosts Governor General winner for literature, John Vaillant for a public discussion forum and reading of his new book, The Golden Spruce (Knopf, Canada) This video was uploaded after the event for those of you who missed it.
