Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Wildbore: A photographic legacy explores the world of Pohangina Valley farmer Charles E. Wildbore through his remarkable photographs. Wildbore captured the unprecedented environmental change that, by the beginning of the 20th century, had transformed a densely forested valley into farms and orderly settlements. Wildbore¿s photographic legacy enables us to visualise the forests that have been almost entirely extinguished from the lowlands of the Manawatu region and, indeed, throughout New Zealand. More than that, it allows us to imagine a future where forests and wetlands are restored ¿ to coalesce with landscapes of human endeavour.

"The book brings together a remarkable photographic record that is of importance to historians and environmental historians, both locally and nationally, as well as to photographic historians and to a broader general audience. ... It adds to the value of the photographs to have this account of Wildbore's life and the times in which he lived"--Foreword.
