Heritage Farming in Australia
This superb soft cover book contains 220 pages, with over 220 photographs, 30 sketches, several maps, document facsimiles and fascinating statistics. The producers have taken several years to thoroughly research primary source material to write this book, and in the process they have corrected “legends” within the often accepted versions of agricultural development.
Covering the years 1860-1945, it depicts the challenges and developments within Australian agriculture, personalised through the documents and the photographs of the extensive Sloane family collection. The story of the Sloanes provides a rare insight into the human side of history, and their fascinating tale is woven throughout the book.
