Thought-provoking and compelling, this book is a journey through Australia’s heartland, following the rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin. Recounting journalist Chris Hammer’s experiences and impressions, it looks past the daily news reports and their sterile statistics to reveal the true impact of the rivers’ decline on the people who live along their shores and on Australia as a whole. As it discloses the residents’ personal stories, this account is punctuated with laughter, sadness, and reflection.
