Description

The West has delighted people for years - the rugged coastline, the deep bush, the mix of industries from the romance of vineyards and orchards to the creative industries involving pottery and the arts, through to the blue collar industries involving sheet metals and engines. This book covers it all, from the days of pre-European battles and early land negotiations to contemporary politics and lifestyles. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field, but all have an affinity with the West. Heavily illustrated and written in a lively and accessible manner, this book has something for everyone who has ever spent time out west. First published March 2009.
