Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Michael Harbison
I am writing to congratulate you on the launch of your new book, Australia's Great River Landscape : Murray River & Mallee.
I am impressed by the time and distance you invested in the production of this book, and your efforts to inspire and educate readers. Your photographs, several of which I saw in The Advertiser recently, are truly beautiful.
On behalf of the people of Adelaide, congratulations once again and I wish you every success for the future.

Hi Shane, just wanted to let you know that I have received the book. Shane, it is just brilliant, I love it. Well done. This book will be in my caravan whenever I go to the Murray. I will look at the book then look at the river. What you have captured is just marvelous. Talk soon

Your fantastic book has arrived! We have a daughter of age 16 just arrived to Australia and now going to live in Cobram for 10 month. With this lovely book about the Murray River, the whole Swedish family can get a good picture about the fantastic surroundings she will experience for real and try to tell us about. By help from this amazing book we will be travelling together with her in our minds.

The book is fantastic. I bought it as a gift for my husband to give his spirits a lift, as we lost thousands of beautiful books in the Bendigo Black Saturday bushfires. It will look great in our new bookshelves and/or coffee table, when our house is eventually rebuilt.
This river has always held a special place in our hearts and the magnificent photographs, stories, maps and new insights in this book have enriched and deepened that place for us.
For a treat we plan to take a holiday next year, following the Murray River, with the book close at hand. This is a very special book, Shane. Thank you
Sandra Baylis, Grange, South Australia
I am absolutely thrilled by the beauty and quality of your photos. The history and detail brings back many memories of the times spent on and around these areas by my family & with my friends. Mostly in SA with a little time in Vic. My father was born in the Riverland - Renmark.

Dear Shane, the book arrived yesterday and I spent last night going through it WOW!!!!!! What a GREAT publication. Everything about it is appealing and I am amazed at the amount of work and research you have obviously put into it.
One thing stands out - the overall quality of the contents and printing!!! I think it is wonderful that the entire publication is 'local' right down to the printing. It just shows what can be done locally!! The publication is an 'easy' read and I would think that virtually everyone that lives in the towns described in the book would want to purchase a copy.
I congratulate you on a job well done. I must say the layout, graphics, vibrant colours and quality of the printed photos is exceptional, and again, congratulations!! Warmest regards Duncan
