Nahanni Reforestation Book
A book of Kodachrome slide photographs, stories and journals by my father, Daniel James, documenting our family and daily life during the 10 years he ran his company, Nahanni Reforestation, planting trees in the very remote wilderness of British Columbia, Canada. 1973-1986.
I was born in a treeplanting camp, 11 miles up the Kingcome River on a sand bar in a teepee, my parents were 19 and 20 years old at the time. My parents were working with a crew reforesting clearcut areas around BC left by the logging industry during the 70's and 80's. Dad started leading his own crew at age 21 and for the next decade we traveled around in old trucks and campers, living in tents and sleeping bags, cook shacks and saunas, with a crew of family and friends while reforesting large parts of the west coast, central and northern BC. Over those years dad and his company planted about 20 million trees.
