Wade Davis fights to save great B.C. rivers with The Sacred Headwaters
West Van native Wade Davis is acclaimed for powerful writing that takes readers to Earth’s far corners, from the Amazon rainforest to the slopes of Everest. Now he’s turning his eye to his home province—and he’s in a fighting mood. On Tuesday (March 6) at SFU Woodward’s, Davis will discuss his stunning new book The Sacred Headwaters, about the struggle to save northern B.C.’s Stikine, Skeena, and Nass rivers from conglomerates planning open-pit mines and methane-gas facilities in the area. In the unlikely event that his words don’t mobilize you, the spectacular colour photography will. See the publisher's website for details.
