Murray River Country: an Ecological Dialogue with Traditional Owners

Murray River Country: an Ecological Dialogue with Traditional Owners discusses the water crisis from a unique perspective - the intimate stories of love and loss from the viewpoints of Aboriginal peoples who know the inland rivers as their traditional country. These experiences bring a fresh narrative to contemporary water debates about the Murray-Darling Basin, and how we should look to more sustainable ways to live in Australia as our approach to water is changing in the face of water scarcity, drought, climate change, and water mismanagement. This book brings new insights to these issues by focusing our attention on what Indigenous people from along the Murray are experiencing, saying, and doing.
