Summary, etc.:
In 2011, Dennis Cronin came across a massive Douglas-fir the height of a twenty-storey building. Originally featured as a long-form article that garnered a National Magazine Award, this book weaves the ecology of old-growth forests, the legend of the West Coast's big trees, the turbulence of the logging industry, the fight for preservation, the contention surrounding ecotourism, First Nations land and resource rights, and the fraught future of these ancient forests around the story of a logger who saved one of Canada's last great trees.
