It was the fall of 1970 that we, Don Prince and Eugene Vugteveen decided to make a film of "one year" spent in one of the most remote areas left on the North American continent, the Stone Mountain Range in British Columbia. Northern British Columbia is one of the last frontiers left on the earth, with its majestic mountains straining toward the heavens and its deep deathlike valleys below, with its many glacier fed rivers cutting their paths through the granite mountains on their journey to the ancient seas of the Western Hemisphere. It is here in a portion of this land that we want to take you. Our film begins with the winter carnival held every year in memory of the early gold rush days. Thrill to the excitement of dog sled races, flour packing contests and woman's snowshoe racing. Join us at Toad river for the annual spring rodeo. Ranch hands and guides gather from all over British Columbia just to see who is the best all-around cowboy in the high country. Travel with us from start to finish of the big game hunting season in late summer as we pursue the Woodland Caribou, Canadian Moose, Wolf, Rocky Mountain Goat, Stone Sheep, and the Mighty Grizzly Bear. Fish the beautiful lakes and streams of the high country that abound with scrappy lake trout that excel in the icy waters of the far north. Lean back and let your mind wander with us as we take you into the beautiful Stone Mountain Range where this film was made. 90 minutes
