Product description

Review

"The astonishing story of reviving the oldest land on Earth. The Wooleen Way is a revelation."
--Tim Flannery

"Written in simple, accessible language devoid of cant or dogma, this is a work of bracing intellectual honesty. All Australians who take environmental issues seriously must read this book." 4.5 STARS
--Chris Saliba, Books+Publishing

"With passion, wisdom, and keen observation, David Pollock has conducted a master class of regenerative rangeland instruction, supported by a do-able plan. The Wooleen Way should be read and absorbed by every agricultural/environment minister in the country and by their departmental staffs, whilst the principles outlined should be taught in all our agricultural colleges."
--Major General Michael Jeffery, AC, CVO, MC, former governor-general of Australia and former governor of Western Australia

"David tells his story with detail, care, humour and an endearing vulnerability. This 360-page paperback is a personal story of a man with a deeply rural heart and love of the land who wants to see it return to its former glory...It's a great read for lovers of autobiographies or anyone who wants to understand rural Australia, and particularly vital for anyone interested in livestock production in semi arid country."
--R.M. Williams Outback

"Through retelling the struggle of his family amid droughts, financial ruin, depression, and death, David Pollock exposes the modern day realities of managing a remote outback station...This is an urgent story of political irresponsibility, bureaucratic obstinacy, industrial monopolisation, and, above all, ecological illiteracy in a vast segment of the Australian continent."
--Sunraysia Life

"By asking difficult questions and following the advice of ecologists who were working against received wisdom, Pollock has managed to bring water back to Wooleen Lake, attract native wildlife, build soil health, and make muddied rivers run clear. Pollock pulls no punches. He questions whether land essentially owned by banks can ever be sustained as a public resource, and criticises government policy that favours short-term profit over environmental restoration and Indigenous land management."
--Michael McLoughlin, Readings

Book Description

A remarkable memoir detailing a heroic and unswerving commitment to renew the severely degraded land on Wooleen, a massive pastoral property in Western Australia's southern rangelands.
