Tells the story of lakes transport, including the economic strategies of the companies who ran the ships. The book offers a new interpretation of the fascinating story of the settlement of Gippsland. Researched from primary sources, it focuses on the crucial importance of shipping on the Gippsland Lakes in opening up a difficult province. It is an engrossing narrative of pioneer navigators, of spirited contests and of the waterways which breathed life into Gippsland's infant industries. Central to the story is the construction of the artificial entrance and its impact on the lakes. Through their use as highways of water the lakes have been irrevocably changed. Although the reasons for change have been told with empathy, this book is a testament to the folly of modifying environments without fully understanding the consequences.
