Overview

Memories of Forestry and Travel reveals how there is more to forestry than trees and more to travel than tourism, and explains how forests are vital to human survival. Fred Hummel places forestry in the broader context of rural development, nature conservation, and the need for an international effort to conserve a precious resource. His unusual insight into the world of forestry is set against the backdrop of a life spent in forests throughout the world, from Uganda to Brussels, for over four decades.
