About this book

An account of the author's trip along the 1000 kilometre road. Intended by its planners to be a major development coup, the road has proved both controversial and ineffective. In this book, the author discusses the road's effect on land distribution, soil ecology and the forest ecosystem, and suggests possible routes to a wiser management and use of the road.
