Specs: 297 x 210mm, 144 pgs, Paperback
ISBN: 9780646508665
Author: Neville Bonney
Publisher: Neville Bonney and Leonie O'Meara

The Carpenter Rocks coastline can be described as the last frontier. The area has only been settled in recent times compared to those other coastal towns on South Australia’s South East coast. Early history of geology, Aboriginal occupation, coastal exploration, ship wrecks, fishing industry and the early visitors to the area make it a welcome addition to other works written on South East history. This is the area known today as Carpenter Rocks, or as the French explorer Nicolas Baudin named Les Charpentiers in 1802.

This book gives a wonderful insight into the life on or near this coastline during the past century. The principal author, well-known and respected local identity Neville Bonney, is no stranger to the area. He is an author of many books and has had a lifetime association with ‘The Rocks’. Now in retirement, he lives in his renovated seaside home, overlooking the Great Southern Ocean and its ever changing moods.

Useful plants of an ancient land

Specs: 235 x 170mm, 112 pgs, Paperback
ISBN: 9780980301304
Author: Neville Bonney
Publisher: Australian Plants Society

The history and other features of the area have been written about in books and other publications. Yet a colourful, rarely mentioned chapter still visible today, are the trees, shrubs, herbs and grasses that grace the slopes and valley floors of the Ranges. These plants have provided the people of the land, the Adnyamathanha, with plentiful food, medicine, craft and hardware supplies for thousands of years.

With the help of the Adnyamathanha people, the story of the plants is told in this book. Many of the stories are interwoven in the Muda (Dreaming), and today, the plants are still growing and are indeed harvested for traditional tribal use as well as sustenance. Adnyamathanha and beyond - useful plants of an ancient land fills a gap in previous works written about the Flinders Ranges.

This book is complete with botanical descriptions and illustrations of many plants, as well as photographs depicting the unique landscapes of the region. Importantly, the book also features language and cultural input by the local Adnyamathanha people.
