Details

A revealing personal history of Myles and Milo Dunphy, the father and son who revolutionised the way Australians see their continent. Myles Dunphy was a draughtsman, architect, conservationist and bushwalker who proposed and mapped a system of national parks in New South Wales and lived to see it become a reality. He is considered the father of the NSW conservation and bushwalking movements. Milo carried on his father’s life-long struggle to protect his beloved wilderness, expanding his father’s work and helping the green movement become a true political force.

During their lives, both men were honoured nationally and internationally for their contributions to conservation in Australia and overseas. They were heroes in a movement that turned Australia into a model for the rest of the world. The book explores not just the political lives of these men, but also their personal lives, it examines the influences of their families upon the two men, the complex relationships they had with the women with whom they were intimate, and the philosophy and passions that drove them. And, while at first it appears they were not close, the profound impact each had on the other becomes clear.

Peter Meredith, who was given open access to Myles’ and Milo’s public and private papers, has written a fascinating biography of two men, of a movement, and of a father-son relationship.
