A comprehensive account of Clayoquot Sound and the protest movement: rainforest ecosystems; the April 1993 land-use decision; co-opted forestry science; the Peace Camp and the Blockades; civil disobedience; the police, the courts and the corporations; environmental rights; ongoing logging violations in 1994 (with photos).

Six of BC’s foremost environmentalists — including Tzeporah Berman and Chris Hatch — offer well-documented essays that illuminate the issues behind the Clayoquot protests of 1993.
