Conducting a journey through Australia’s heartland, this narrative follows the rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin, recounting the author’s experiences, impressions, and, above all, stories of the people he encountered along the way. Punctuated with laughter, sadness, and reflection, this journey looks past the daily news reports to reveal the true impact the drying rivers have on the people who live along their shores and on the country as a whole. Vivid in its portrayal, this tale leaves a lingering sense of nostalgia for an Australia that may be fading away forever.
