Olegas Truchanas (1923 – 1972) was a Lithuanian-Australian conservationist and nature photographer. He was a key figure in the attempt to stop the damming of the ecologically sensitive Lake Pedder in South West Tasmania by the Hydro Electricity Commission. His photographs, along with those of his protégé, Peter Dombrovskis, helped raise public awareness of the importance of  south-west Tasmania. Sadly he lost his life in the Gordon River Gorge in the heart of Tasmania’s south-west wilderness. This is a hard copy book with a dustjacket.
