New Book Coming - The Murray Canal

Over the last two years I have done lots of work on the history of the Carrying Place and the Murray Canal. There have been several presentations and will be more. The next step is a book. The content is coming together and I am looking for options for publishing. No timeframe yet, but something to look forward to.
