Canberra journalist Chris Hammer has written a book on the
Murray-Darling River basin that is a personal encounter with rural Australia.
'The River' isn't a didactic tome on the perils of ignoring Climate Change prophecies, but it recognises climate change, drought and irrigation as the key problems that beset the
Murray-Darling basin. To everything to which you could apply structural economics or Marxist historiography, there is as well the meddling pollie, the renegade border irrigator, the ratbags, the
no-hopers, yabbie rustlers and gelignite terrorists on the Paroo.
The River is published by Melbourne University Press
Not often found as a salvaged floorboard, and often confused with Brushbox, Turpentine shares a wandering grainline, often revealed as a meandering fracture on the surface of old wharf decking. But it seems to drift to the
deeper-toned end of the same colour spectrum. Purpley so - as if seen through a glass darkly.
There's something about a 60mm board that works. Producing dimensional serotonins or proportion endorphins.
