Australia's major river system, the Murray-Darling, is collapsing. Parts of it are dying and parts of it are already dead. Some places near the shores of South Australia's lower lakes, where the Murray has stopped flowing, may never recover.
This book tells the story of the things the author observed and the people he met whilst travelling along the river. He also considers the environment and sees first-hand the effects of climate change, drought and mismanagement on the land.
