About the project
We converted this project from a PDF to a standard reflowing epub and mobi. There were almost 700 hyperlinks within the ebook that needed to be done and there were a few images that had to be optimised for the ebook. The whole project went very smoothly from start to finish, ending with aggregation to the major resellers.
About the book
For nearly 200 years the visions and aspirations of the people of Australia’s west have been characterised by an unquenchable thirst. Ruth Morgan uncovers the fear of running out of water — a fear that has long gripped the region’s inhabitants and loomed large on the state’s political agenda. It has shaped how urban and rural Western Australians learned to live with the effects of a variable climate on their water supply, lifestyle, and livelihood. This is a story of hardship and persistence; of inclusion, exclusion and defiant profligacy in the face of growing scarcity, through a period of great development and social change. An engrossing environmental history that offers a new understanding of the past Running Out? questions this way of life as we approach an uncertain future in a drying climate.
