Our last book of 2016 features the Golden Spruce, a true story about how a forest engineer Grant Hadwin surreptitiously felled the tree as a political statement against industrial logging companies. He was later arrested but disappeared on his way to trial.
This month’s book: The Golden Spruce: A True Story of Myth, Madness and Greed by John Vaillant.
John Vaillant is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, National Geographic, and Outside, among others. His first book, The Golden Spruce (Norton, 2005), was a bestseller and won several awards, including the Governor General’s Award for Non-Fiction (Canada).
