Bush Battalion. The AMP Society's Ninety Mile Desert Development in South Australia

Sydney Cove, AMP Society, 1984.

Octavo, 128 pages with numerous illustrations (from photographs) plus endpaper maps.

Papered boards slightly rubbed at the extremities; an excellent copy with the lightly creased dustwrapper.

Inscribed and signed by the author on the title page. The half-title and the page facing it contain over 50 signatures, at the head of which is a signed inscription from Peter Lewis, Member for Mallee at the time: 'With respect to those who made it happen!'. It is not hard to find some of the signatories mentioned in the text, which records 'the story of an ambitious undertaking which created 300 thriving farms from 750,000 acres of previously useless country' in the south-east of SA after the Second World War.
