Book Description Melbourne University Press, Australia, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A Forester s Log is a unique forest story, told from a forester s viewpoint the view of John La Gerche, one of the first generation of foresters in Victoria, who managed the Ballarat Creswick State Forest in the late nineteenth century. La Gerche s Letter Books and Pocket Books have survived to provide a rare insight into a bailiff-forester s burdens in the 1880s and 1890s. As a bailiff, he daily had to confront prop cutters and woodcarters, scamps and vagabonds who constantly defied forest regulations. His pioneering work helped shape today s forested landscape around the Central Victorian goldfields town of Creswick, the home of forestry . In the detailed correspondence between this amateur forester and his bureaucratic masters lies the human story of an ordinary yet remarkable man, endeavouring to strike a fair balance between the competing demands of local woodcutters and distant officials. Angela Taylor reads between the lines to create a beautifully perceptive portrait of a vanishing character type the truly committed public servant. A Forester s Log is an illuminating and charming book which will appeal to a wide range of readers, both urban and rural, Seller Inventory # AAN9780522848397
