Snowy: The Making of Modern Australia 

by Brad Collis.

The Snowy Mountains Scheme was the foundation on which Australia built multiculturalism, secondary and tertiary industries, and one of the world’s great renewable energy resources. In just 25 years, the Scheme transformed Australia from British and agricultural to multicultural and industrial. Yet this story that embodies the essence of who we are as a modern nation has almost been forgotten.

Snowy celebrates one of the most dramatic and inspiring episodes of modern Australian history. It is a tribute, more than 60 years on, to the vision behind the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, the expertise of its designers, its ongoing modernisation, and the tens of thousands of workers from more than 30 different countries who made it possible.
