In her latest book, photographer Melanie Faith Dove depicts Australian mountain cattlemen through four seasons of work, from droving their cattle into the high country during summer, to mustering them home in autumn before the snow falls. In capturing the spirit of the mountain cattlemen, Melanie communicates the challenges they face; in May 2015, grazing cattle was banned in alpine national parks in Victoria, but the legend lives on in State Forests.
