Here is the fourth book in this wonderful series about transport, trade and travel in Australia.
Focusing on 1850s-1920s this book shows how the miracle of steam power brought Australia into the mechanical age. Find out how it changed Australia and read about paddle steamers trading up our inland waterways, steam engines riding the railroads and how steam powered factories produced a huge variety of goods as well as powered the tools used by the shearers or the crop growers. The books in this series are brilliant.
