The River Runs Dry pictures

The River Runs Dry description

The Murray-Darling Basin is dying. Despite its catastrophic plight, and the devastating findings of the South Australian Royal Commission, policy is corrupted, neglected or ignored. Richard Beasley draws on his experience as Counsel Assisting the Royal Commission in Dead in the Water, a book that is simultaneously hilarious and deadly serious, and very, very angry. Margaret Simons’ celebrated Quarterly Essay, Cry Me A River (QE77), is both a portrait and explanation of our current predicament. Grant Rigney is the Director of the Murray Lower Darling Rivers Indigenous Nations.
