This chapter summarizes the Royal Commission of 1901 into the western lands of New South Wales. The procedure adopted was the use of quotations to preserve the emphasis and colour of those who bore witness to the rapid changes induced by overstocking with sheep, and from rabbits, drought and erosion. The selection presented here reflects what emerged as most relevant during the period of editing Future of the Fauna of Western New South Wales.
