“Foreword – Pioneers first began to settle in Milang and surrounding districts during the early 1850s.  They came to the area for two main reasons, to establish farms on land that had just been surveyed for selection, or to work in the thriving paddle steamer trade carrying goods up and down the Murray River.  Our forebears were ordinary people who had the courage and determination to overcome severe hardships in order, not only to survive, but to succeed as well.  This book will serve as a tribute to all these people whether actually mentioned by name or not.”
