The books provide absorbing and fascinating reading and are highly recommended for both students of South Australian History, and the general reader. All books are about people, men and women, who tried to make a living in this rugged, isolated, semi-arid area, which at the same time is also spectacular, quiet and magnificently scenic. The books describe the often insurmountable problems and challenges faced by farmers, miners, railwaymen and investors. They also relate an intriguing history of the trials and tribulations of the battlers, dreamers, promoters, losers, swindlers and the small and large companies who all contributed to the development of this beautiful part of Australia.
