SOLITUDE OF FORESTS
While a forester’s work is often solitary, many forestry
workers had young families who often travelled with their
parents for work. The feelings of freedom must have
outweighed the feelings of isolation, as these children
enjoyed upbringings that few could experience today.
In some instances, families lived and worked within the
forests for long periods of time.
