Summary
The story of Alfred W. Canning and the development and subsequent use of the 1800 kilometre long Canning Stock Route from Halls Creek to Wiluna is told in this new volume. Original historical documents are combined with oral history in a narrative that covers the origins of the stock route, surveying, construction of the wells, droving, deaths and murders, exploration and prospecting, well restoration, identities and adventurers, place name origins and tourism. This new book features photographs, maps, exploration and droving journals that have never been published before. Mysteries of the stock route are solved, and long-held beliefs and myths corrected. Phil Bianchi?s research is complemented by expert analyses of flora, fauna and pasture. This heavily referenced and comprehensively indexed book is destined to become the definitive history of the Canning Stock Route and will appeal to general and professional readers, historians, anthropologists, scientists, family history researchers, local shires, tour companies, tourists and CSR travellers
