Description Free Sample Download
'South Australia: Its History, Resources and Productions', was edited and largely written by William Harcus in 1876. The book was published by authority of the Government of South Australia, with, like several similar books of this period, the hope that it would inform people 'back home' in England of the prosperity of the colony and encourage people to migrate.

It contains about 600 pages full of detailed information of the colony on South Australia, including chapters on founders, pioneers, colonial development, government, land, mining, railways, infrastructure, industries, religion, education and exploration, as well as containing additional chapters relating to the Northern Territory and Central Australia (which was part of South Australia at the time).

Detailed sections are also included on flora, fauna, statistics, geology and mines written by various experts in the field.

Containing a great deal of useful information, and some fantastic maps - this is a book for historians of South Australia's history.

Originally produced by Archive CD Books Australia in 2006, this title has now been remastered and re-released, and includes better searching capability. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole year's worth of issues, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
