The top right-hand corner of the front end page has been creased and has a short tear. There is no other damage to describe. This is not just another book about the Murray, it is a book that captures the spirit of an evolving nation. The story of the taming of the Murray is one that holds lessons for us all. For the Murray River is at risk. The salt it carries into South Australia threatens that state's survival. Man's need for water in this most arid of continents makes new conservation measures for the river imperative. No book yet written about the Murray better documents this need: nor so completely captures the capricious flow of the river; its meandering courses, its swamps and lakes and billabongs.
