About the Book
The mighty Murray River meanders for more than 2,300 km through south-eastern Australia and represents a lifeline for all the communities which depend on its precious waters. Its moments of tranquility and beauty belie its turbulent history as upstream and downstream communities battle over a share in this vital resource, too precious to lose.
Ecologist Dr Anne Jensen combines her professional interest in wetlands and rivers with her personal interest in photography and history while visiting many interesting places. Her husband’s interest in clay target shooting takes them to international destinations off the beaten tourist track, and Anne explores and photographs the local natural and historical sites. Her books share her journeys of exploration and discovery, with evocative photographs which highlight the beauty of places visited, with a special interest in local wetland sites.
