'In this book, Ron Parsons, who already has established his name as perhaps the leading Australian nautical historian, tells the story of 'Steam in the South' from its earliest days until the steamers in their turn were displaced by other means of transport. His lucid text is accompanied by a superb series of historical photographs covering the subject from the 1840s to the 1970s.'
