Derrick Stacey Denholm’s Ground Truthing

Ground Truthing is not just a general nod towards the importance of conservationism; Denholm’s great success lies in his ability to create genuine reader empathy for the North Coast rainforest, perhaps even in readers who haven’t spent a lot of time considering their connection to nature. A logging gaffe in which supersaturated hemlock trees were cut and dumped in the ocean only to sink to the bottom, (never to be recovered) inspires a feeling akin to the death of several beloved characters in a Game of Thrones battle scene. Such senseless waste.
