Discussing the water crisis from a unique perspective, this volume presents the intimate stories of love and loss felt by the Aboriginal people of Australia whose traditional country incorporates the inland rivers. A fresh perspective on the contemporary debate over the scarce and degraded waters of the Murray–Darling Basin, this account argues there is a need to change the existing fundamental philosophies about water and that river health greatly influences Australia’s economy. By engaging with the Murray–Darling Basin, Australia’s agricultural heartland, this record covers various topics, such as environmental science, water management, indigenous land management, anthropology, and politics. This book will interest policy makers, academics, and the general public.
