Born to a life of private schools, cricket games and society balls, Bob Henderson abandoned it all when he was 18 for the challenges found in the mountains of northern British Columbia as a guide, bush pilot and fishing resort owner. After five seasons working for guide-outfitter Tommy Walker in the Spatsizi Plateau as a young man during the 1960s, where he became friendly with wranglers, cooks and the Tlogoti'ne First Nations, Bob Henderson joined outfitters Love Bros. & Lee in the Kispiox Valley. Still spending time at his fishing lodge on Tatlatui Lake, Henderson, as a resident of Smithers, compiled his memoirs of life in northern B.C. as In the Land of the Red Goat (Creekstone Press 2006).
