Fight for the Forests by Paul Bensemann – book reviewby Chris Moore
Aside from the story of battles won and lost, Bensemann also reveals how the environmental movement evolved into a highly effective lobby group. This lively account also examines the personalities who spearheaded campaigns that swept up from Lake Manapōuri to the West Coast and far beyond. The book leaves us with the sobering thought that although some battles may have been won, this particular fight continues.
