The Summit of her Ambition
The Spirit Life of Marie Byles written by local resident Anne McLeod
Lawyer, feminist, environmentalist, mountaineer, Buddhist – the exceptional story of the first woman qualified to practise law in New South Wales.
Written by local Killcare resident Anne McLeod, this new book tells the incredible story of the inspiring Marie Byles. Byles fought for equal rights in law and actively supported women's ambitions. She was Australia's first environmental lawyer and helped to protect and conserve many National Parks, including our surrounding Bouddi National Park. Her life story has powerful narratives about human rights, conservation, ecology, feminism and spirituality, along with the personal fallibilities of a woman determined to be true to herself and her beliefs.
