The Wooleen Way
David Pollock’s engrossing read tells the story of his passionate mission to renew his family’s massive pastoral property in Western Australia’s southern rangelands. It follows on from his appearances on ABC TV’s “Australian Story”. Pollock outlines the ups and downs of his journey, which is filled with stubborn bureaucrats, mistrustful neighbours, declining government services and fair weather financiers. There’s a bigger story here though about the ecological degradation of a huge part of the Australian landscape, and how dedicated landholders like Pollock can be part of the solution. This is an inspiring and highly readable story; it will make many readers want to visit Wooleen as soon as possible!
