Synopsis: The Murray River is in crisis and faces an uncertain future. This evocative book explores the reasons why the river has become degraded and what these changes have meant to the Australians. This in-depth study of the Murray River examines the changing cultural meanings of the river, the practical forgetfulness that has eroded the Aboriginal presence, the triumphant narratives in which a supposedly empty land is made purposeful by the life-giving powers of the Murray, and the passion to make the river’s flow predictable and to replace primitive forces with a domesticated and balanced landscape.
About the Author:
Paul Sinclair grew up near the Murray River at Kerang, in northern Victoria. He has published widely on Australia’s environmental history and is now a research fellow at the Australian Center at the University of Melbourne. He lives in Melbourne, Australia.
