Sitting complacently in our mid-North American homes feeling self righteous about stalling the pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta to Norman, OK is not enough. Our neighbor to the north is gutting its environmental laws to bring us filthy oil or ship its minerals to the gaping mouth of developing Asia. The current Canadian prime minister, when it comes to the environment, is a clone of George Bush. And the BC provincial government simply ignores its own law when development is concerned.
This is a great book about an environmental conflict over a wilderness that is in our back yard. As author is well known for, the research that went into it is both thorough and compelling. The picture of Elder Tahltan women in their button blankets being herded into paddy wagons tells us how much they care. Read this book to find out about a real wilderness in our back yard and to become charged to help do something to stop its despoliation.

My previous review suggests I do not support the movement to save the headwaters project.Not true.
Sacred Headwaters is not a bad book,its not the tool for education and the necessary passionate environmental activism he seeks to engender.
Go see Wade Davis compelling You tube series of TED TALKS on this topic instead,take heed of his insight and please answer his call to get involved to save this watershed!
