Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

John Sclater arrived in Western Australia at the beginning of January 1958 as an assisted migrant nominated by the Forests Department. During the next 11 years district work took him over most of the South-West with long spells at Dwellingup, Shannon River and Harvey. Intrigued by the unfamiliar place names of a new country, in particular the

forest block names, he often found that their origins were based on opinion and supported by very little factual information. Later when computerizing the data for pine and hardwood logging operations his interest was rekindled. Hence the decision to research the names used by the Forests Department - the rest , as they say is history! Large paperback, pictorial card covers. 248 x 176mm., pp. xxxviii (maps etc.), 289, black & white and cololur plates, references, personal references. Contents, no inscriptions. NEAR FINE.
