About this title:

Synopsis: "A youthful craving for an outdoor life drove me to foresake the dreary walls of a London office for a rather dubious future in an isolated valley deep in the Coast Range of central British Columbia." So began the author's search for an unaltered wilderness area which first led him to the beautiful Bella Coola Valley and ultimately to SPATSIZI -- land of the Red Goat. Born in 1904 at Gravesend, Kent in England, T.A. (Tommy) Walker studied brewing and malting and in 1923 he joined a London firm of grain importers specializing in California barley. He left England in 1929 and emigrated to the Bella Coola Valley in British Columbia. Here, he cleared land for a farm, helped build and operate Stuie (later Tweedsmuir) Lodge and became a professional guide and outfitter. He was instrumental in establishing Tweedsmuir Park in 1937. Searching for an unspoiled wilderness home, in 1948 Mr. Walker and his wife Marion travelled 900 miles via pack-train from the Bella Coola Valley to the headwaters of the Stikine River in northwestern British Columbia. At Cold Fish Lake they established a big game hunting outfit. In 1956 Mr. Walker joined with others to propose a Wilderness Research Foundation to safeguard the unspoiled ecology of the Spatsizi area, now the province's newest wilderness reserve. A long and discouraging crusade began in 1956 -- a desperate struggle to save the wilderness area from the tentacles of a developing industrial economy. This warmly written story tells of their love for the land and their fight to safeguard the area's natural wildlife habitat. SPATSIZI explains well why we must not allow the last vestige of an uninterrupted eco-system to disappear forever.
