ABOUT THE AUTHOR
By Elizabeth Frankel and Garry Duncan (Illustrator)
A Grandfather and his young Grandson embark on an adventure of exploration and discovery of the lower reaches of the Murray River. River Boy focuses on the current circumstance of environmental decline, and along their adventure explores the changes Grandfather has seen since he was a young boy.
A gentle, sentimental story that highlights the many uses of the river, the beauty of its natural environment, and the wildlife that depend on it, but also how man has significantly altered things over the past few generations.
