Refining the Definition of Wilderness – Martin Hawes, Grant Dixion and Chris Bell
Offering a scholarly perspective on the definition of wilderness, this publication appraises the effectiveness of existing definitions and recommends a definition that focuses on experiential as well as ecological values.
The authors, all of whom live in Tasmania, collectively represent almost a century of experience in the field of wilderness advocacy and management, and more than 120 years of experiencing wilderness first-hand.
‘Exchanging pack for pen, these authors tackle the true meaning of wilderness. In an age of disgusting wild lands desecration, here is a Tasmanian book with global significance.’ - Bob Brown
