Into The Woods: The Battle for Tasmania's Forests

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.

Anna Krien is the author of Night GamesInto the Woods and Quarterly Essay 45 Us and Them. Her work has been published in the Monthly, the Age, the Big IssueThe Best Australian EssaysThe Best Australian StoriesGriffith ReviewVoiceworksGoing Down SwingingColorsFrankie and Dazed & Confused.
