Vanishing Heritage: The Loss of the Ancient Redcedar from Canada's Rainforest, J

Written by John Nelson. Published by Western Canada Wilderness Committee and David Suzuki Foundation

The western redcedar is a rare icon of British Columbia and so significantly it is the province's official tree. It is profoundly important to coastal aboriginal people and an essential component of the coastal temperate rainforest ecosystem. This report describes the cultural heritage of the western redcedar, the logging history and the effects these operations are having on the magnificent trees and the habitat that surrounds them.

For many years Tony Eberts wrote a weekly outdoors column for the Province newspaper. His spirited writings in defense of wild places helped attract many to the BC environment movement including the Wilderness Committee's Joe Foy. This is Tony's second book. "Back when BC's Adams Lake was mostly wilderness, my father took his family to a remote homestead there so he could take the starring role of pioneer, hunter, angler, trapper and builder in a backwoods drama. These are some childhood memories of that 13 year reality show." Paperback 180 pages, black and white 5 1/2 " x 8 1/2" ISBN 1-895123-29-1

Liquid Gold, By John Calvert

Secure, reliable and affordable electricity has been one of BC's most important competitive advantages and key contributor to the province's prosperity. Calvert shows how the government is supplanting BC's successful public system with a deregulated private sector model that will enrich private power developers and undermine BC's ability to control future energy development. 258 pages (6" x 9") Paperback

Picturing Transformation, Nexw-áyantsut

This is the story of the Uts'am Witness Project, which happened over a span of ten years as thousands of people – artists, loggers, government officials, environmentalists, tourists, youth at risk, families and children – made the journey from Vancouver to Sims Creek in the Elaho Valley. These weekend journeys to threatened wilderness areas, hosted by Squamish Nation Hereditary Chief Bill Williams, telasemkin-siyam, brought people into direct contact with nature; with Squamish stories, dance, games, art, and opportunities to hear from elders, scientists, conservationists, and artists from native and non-native traditions.

Through the words and photos of those who ventured to "Wild Spirit Places", this beautiful book pays homage to the power that people with strong vision and a common purpose can have in honouring tradition, safeguarding land and changing policy.
