Charles Fleming: Environmental Patriot
A Biography by Mary McEwen

He serves his country best who loves the land itself

So wrote Charles Fleming in the winter of 1972, when the battle to save Lake Manapouri had not yet been won and conservationists were girding their loins to fight for native forests. But this remarkable New Zealander was much more than a committed conservationist. In a life packed with achievements and honours, Charles Fleming's influence spread far beyond New Zealand.

Perhaps his most important scientific contribution was as a biogeographer, a field in which he combined his understanding of geology and palaeontology with his knowledge of living organisms.

But it was in the conservation movement that Fleeting had his largest following. Actively involved in the Save Manapouri Campaign in the early 1970s, he later became a fearless spokesman for the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society and the Native Forests Action Council in campaigns to save New Zealand's native forests.

In this fascinating, readable and timely biography, Charles Fleming's daughter, Mary McEwen, tells the extraordinary story of this extraordinary man.
