The Snowy a History

Anniversary Edition


 The Snowy: A History tells the extraordinary story of one of the world’s engineering marvels, mostly built by the migrant migrant workforce.

 Siobhán McHugh’s The Snowy, reveals the human stories of migrant workers, high country locals, politicians and engineers. It also examines the difficult and dangerous aspects of such a major construction in which 121 men lost their lives.

The Snowy Scheme was an extraordinary engineering feat carried out over twenty-five years from 1949 to 1974 – one that drove rivers through tunnels built through the Australian Alps, irrigated the dry inland and generated energy for the densely populated east coast. It was also a site of post-war social engineering that helped create a diverse multicultural nation.

If you have an interest of the making of modern Australia, this is the book for you.
