Tells the story of Australia's giant eucalypt, the Mountain Ash, which grows in the region north and east of Melbourne. Griffiths tells the environmental, ecological and social history of a unique Australian forest, and, in doing so, tells the story of the continent as a whole.
'Griffiths' research work has clear and practical applications ! Griffiths brings special insights into understanding forests.' The Age 'Forests of Ash is informative and engaging. Readers will be taken by the fiery content and thought-provoking prose.' Bary Dowling, The Sunday Age 'Griffiths writes with a good novelist's craftsmanship and sensitivity.' Canberra Times ' ! a profoundly enjoyable work, illustrated both in colour and in black and white (neither of which is any kind of pun).' Australian Book Review ' ! well illustrated ! This book is a pleasure to read and is likely to appeal to both specialist and general audiences.' The Agricultural History Review
