Abstract:  An `inside' account of the struggle to preserve South Moresby from clearcut logging and to create South Moresby National Park. Elizabeth May, who worked as an advisor to federal Environment Minister Tom McMillan, a post she eventually resigned, gives her view of the roles of the various players in this drama: the natives of the Haida nation, loggers, environmentalists, and politicians. Given her position, it is perhaps not surprising that May devotes more attention to internal political infighting than to the work of the activists on the ground.
