"This book, Timber Cruising, deals quite specifically with some of those people who contributed to the transition - those involved in the aspect of native forest survey, measurement, and assessment that preceded sale and harvest and which was known as “cruising”. In the process, they helped instill a measure of discipline around an industry which up until that point had largely been extractive.
Timber Cruising is centered on 25 or so stories of experiences in the bush with a good mix of history, hardship, and humour that ensures the reader is both well-informed and entertained. It is well supported by photography from the day - maps, cartoons, poems, and other memorabilia - while a series of other articles explain cruising and put it into historical context."
