Summary: The Myall River State Forest, between Buladelah and Stroud, lies about 170 km north of Sydney. With its dense hardwood tree cover known as the Purgatory Scrub it was very tempting to timber companies, but its rugged terrain proved a great obstacle. This book describes the efforts of a succession of five companies, beginning with Millars' Timber and Trading Company of Western Australia, to exploit the timber. It involved the establishment of a sawmill, logging tramways to the port of Alworth, on the Karuah River, from where the timber was taken to Sydney in shallow draft steamers. A village, known as Simsville, grew up around the sawmill, with up to 100 residents. The sawmill operated from 1912 to 1947 and the book records the names of over 300 people who were associated with the operation.-Back cover.
