Kurzbeschreibung

Winner, 2011 Queensland Premier's Literary Awards
Winner, 2011 Victorian Premier's Literary Awards


For many years, the Tasmanian wilderness has been the site of a fierce struggle. At stake is the future of old-growth forests. Loggers and police face off with protesters deep in the forest, while savage political games are played in the courts and parliaments.

In Into the Woods, Anna Krien, armed with a notebook, a sleeping bag and a rusty sedan, ventures behind the battlelines to see what it is like to risk everything for a cause. She speaks to ferals and premiers, sawmillers and whistle-blowers. She investigates personalities and convictions, methods and motives. This is a book about a company that wanted its way and the resistance that eventually forced it to change.

Updated with a new afterword, Into the Woods is intimate, intrepid reporting by a fearless new voice.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A book every conservationist should read 30. November 2013
Von Polkwyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a revelation for those of us who lived through these times and in this place (Tasmania) as it provides the detail and inside insight into those things we only ever read, saw or heard about in biased media coverage. Similarly it would be a revelation for those who have perhaps never heard of the fight to save the Tasmanian forests. Emotively and evocatively written it provides an unashamedly passionate examination of these Tasmanian forestry 'wars'.
It would be interesting for Krien to investigate and write about the events and happenings in this ongoing battle since she finished this book.

I used to to live in Tassie. This is a true representation of what is happening. I actually met a lot of the people in here. Made it even more interesting. Great to read about both sides! I highly recommend this book. Quick read and great information!

Superb book, great insight into exactly how corporations run governments and why they need to be regulated. They cannot be trusted and are dishonest because of their motivations.

This was an incredibly enlightening essay that gave me insight into Tasmania, it's people, politics and business. It has changed my thinking entirely and is a must read for all new immigrants to Australia and its residents. Thank you Anna.

Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This gave me much enlightenment about how the world works. Though always of the mind that logging should be stopped because the price of what was lost was so high, I sorta had some sympathy for the timber industry because it was providing employment and revenue.

But then you are made to see that industry is not necessarily about providing employment, it is mostly about profit. And the timber industry has been shedding workers for years as it became more automated. So it was no longer a career prospect for many young folk, but a vehicle for making money for a few and providing revenue for a state. The latter might be some justification for logging, but reading this the numbers did not seem to add up. What is being lost was far too great a price.

I like Annas writing style and enjoyed the read as a consequence. It blended dry facts with little anecdotes and interesting characters very well. I seek out her writings as I know I will enjoy and learn at the same time. She did a beauty on animal rights or farming in the Quarterly Essays as well.

(Sometimes I wonder if she is a bit reserved in her approach. She could really let rip if she wanted and it would be a ripping read.)
