It is a story of loss and recovery, of generations of men and women dedicated to their occupation in often difficult and uncomfortable – even dangerous – circumstances. Based on interviews and extensive historical research, Millers engaging investigation uncovers the rich history of the foresters and examines, in both social and economic contexts, the importance of the forests to Scotland, and particularly the Highlands. Illuminating and compelling, The Foresters is a thoughtful and engaging story with many strands that casts a captivating light on this long-neglected industry and the complex and inspirational individuals who have lived their lives through it.
