As recounted by Les Warnes

Author: Meredith Satchell

Product Description:
300x210mm
244pp
Paperback

Les Warnes 1922-2016, spent most of his long life on Woolgangi Station 65 Kilometres east of Burra. In 2009 Les began telling the story of his love of the eastern country to Meredith Satchell.
Two years later this book was the result of their collaboration.
It was primarily intended for the family and its popularity with a wider audience surprised both Les and Meredith and resulted in three print runs.
It has been illustrated with some 300 images covering not only the station country to the east but Les's life-long interest in cars, and other vehicles, dam sinking and the changing station lifestyle.
The result is a fascinating insight into a bygone era.

The shifting fortunes of the town have been meticulously researched and charted.
Churches and hotels, businesses and bridges, floods and droughts, along with the cycle of births, deaths and marriages are presented in wonderfully evocative photographs.
While the editors have done the old town proud, their history tells a larger story of settlement, adaptation to a hard climate and historical change.

Burra: A Photographic Journey is a visual treat and a pleasure to read.

The Martin, Jacka, Crougey and Coombe familes in Cornwall and South Australia

Product Description:
170x240mm
520pp
Paperback

Author: Tony & Wendy Edwards

ISBN: 978-0-6469518-0-5

Using letters, newspaper reports and genealogical sources, this history explores four families with origins in Cornwall, in Stithians, Gwennap and Wendron parishes and the town of St Day.
All made the voyage to South Australia between 1847 and 1849 as assisted emigrants. The focus is on three generations, emigrants, colonists and native South Australians, whose stories illustrate themes in South Australian history.
While some remained in Adelaide, others dispersed to the Victorian goldfields, to the Yorke Peninsula mines and into the northern areas as agriculture expanded.
These families contributed to the colony in mining and slate production, retail, education, blacksmithing and stove-making, brewing and hotel keeping and farming.
Their stories are intertwined with those of Adelaide, Moonta, Auburn, Melrose, Willochra and Hammond.

Hard cover book

Author: John Ibbotson
ISBN: 978-0-9581214-0-8

After spending years photographing wildlife and snowy landscapes, followed by being forever on the move getting to Australia’s far flung lighthouses, I was looking for an easy-going project.
Brooms Head Beach NSW, which is close to home looked like it met my criteria.
I decided to photograph the sand and where the sea and sand intermingled. I then added the local birds, preferably when they were flying to provide variety. Bird wings are wonderful subjects.
As I’m already considered a little odd photographing sand would confirm this.
Then some family friends dropped in for a visit. On arriving home Jenny asked seven-year-old Ingrid what she thought of Ibbo. “Ibbo: Well he’s funny but a little bit crazy”. That gave me the impetus to proceed.
I divided the location into four shooting zones: Brooms Head Beach north of the Cakora Lagoon I called Dogs Beach, because my doggy assistants Tessie and Bella were welcome there.
The southern part of the beach and Cakora Rocks were called the People’s Beach. The third was the headland and the north end of South (Sandon) Beach. The “studio” in my back yard was the fourth.
The neat thing about Dogs beach was the outlet from Cakora Lagoon, which flows across the beach. This provided still water on the sand. It also meant that the beach had a convex surface, which resulted in various three dimensional patterns in the sand. The black rutile also highlighted the sand’s surface, creating different images.
The bird and location images were mostly straight forward, but the sand shots went through an “imaginisation” process to make them spring to life.
To create a whole book to come from such a small area seemed a little crazy but I’ve sure had fun doing it. Thank you Ingrid.
