As I am from the Murray Region of Victoria. Australia I can relate on what it was like in those times through the history I was taught at school. I am originally from Mildura and my husband is from Swan Hill. Some of the paddle steamers are still going to this day. I would recommend Daughter Of The Murray who would love a story about love, friendship and the trying times on what the Murray and drought can bring. One thing I would like to know, where about is the home stead situated.
