The Training of a Forester

Read by KHand

(4.5 stars; 17 reviews)

Written by a forester, this book looks at the definition of "forest", what the life of a forester entails, discusses the forest service both on the state and national levels, and the training required to be a forester. As a forester himself, and the chief of the US Forest Service, Pinchot was a foremost expert in this topic,and, based on his preface to the work, seems to expect this work to either encourage or dissuade young people from a life in forestry. - Summary by KHand (1 hr 58 min)

Great insight into early American Forestry.

Australian forester here: fantastic book, good broad understanding of the American forester in years long since past, however, no doubt much is still relative. narration was also great, fast pace, is ideal for adhd listeners.
