Australian Riverboats, A Pictorial History (Book) AUD $29.95

Australian Riverboats A Pictorial History brings together a unique collection of photos, sketches and accounts of the life of river communities.

This is not just a book for riverboat enthusiats, it is for anyone with an interest in social history.

The outstanding success of Peter Christopher's Paddlesteamers and Riverboats of the River Murray lead him to write this book focussing upon historical boats and the people whose lives and communities depended on them.

Peter has selected photos that tell a story.  They are not just pictures of boats, but images of society.  Men, women, children, cars, horses and even an elephant; the altar of a mission boat and dining rooms, all provide an insight into the development of our nation.

The historic photos from the State Library of South Austrialia's Godson Collection are wonderfully complemented with the sketches created by Chris Halls.

Australian Riverboats A Pictorial History provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of people on the Murray, Darling, Lachlan and Murrumbidgee Rivers.
