    About the Author

    Shane Strudwick has been photographing the Murray River and Mallee region for this book for over 6 years starting in 2004. He?s aiming to reveal a small part of the secrets, stories, character and connections of this wonderful region for you to enjoy. The stunning, unique and sometimes quirky images show a landscape and communities that have diversity, strength and beauty not seen anywhere in the world. As the Murray River has been through significant drought and stress this book shows you there?s a lot more to the river than meets the eyes.
