  • What Edward Eyre Saw

    These are extracts relating to native fish, river conditions and aboriginal fishing practices drawn from Edward John Eyre’s journals. They document what Eyre observed on the SA reaches of the Murray River (Morundie region) when it was still relatively pristine, and are fascinating reading. The time frame covered by these observations is September 1841 to December 1844. Preface by Simon Kaminskas.
