LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

This is a story of lakes transport, including the economic strategies of the companies who ran the ships. There have been lots of smaller publications on the ships themselves and descriptions of trips through the lakes, but they give little idea of how shipping fitted into the overall picture. This book puts the pieces together for the first time. This book is an engrossing narrative of various intra-regional rivalries (Sale versus Bairnsdale, North versus South Gippsland, rail and road versus waterways) as well as the rivalry between the lakes boats and the Murray River interlopers. But nature was the greatest rival of all. The contest between settlers and the elements is the highlight of this story. The author shows how lakes shipping was a saga of mishaps and fluctuating fortunes caused by chance, freak weather and other variables beyond human control. Soft card covers. Fine condidtion. 236pp. 249 x 170 mm
