"Charles Lane Poole (1885-1970), a man who commanded attention, he was a little over average height, with a square face, strong jaw, determined eye, and a hook in place of his left hand." "Fired by the ideals of forest conservation and its science, Poole followed their dictates in Western Australia and across the world - irrespective of the personal consequences or the political reality. This fascinating biography follows his life from his birth in England in 1885 to Ireland, France, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Western Australia, Papua New Guinea, Canberra, where he established Australia's national forestry school, and Sydney, where he died in 1970." "He was a truly zealous conservator: a man so sure in his path that his intolerance of any other views but his own was to blight his career as a public servant and to prove his Achilles Heel. Charles Lane Poole advanced the frontier of forest conservation in Australia with great knowledge and relentless energy. Yet conservation was a complex, contentious matter in his time, no less so than it is in our own, as intensely political as it was scientific."--BOOK JACKET.
