This is the joyful yet heartbreaking true story of four friends who walk a 21-day pilgrimage from the sea to the source of Melbourne's Yarra River. This is no path for most of the way, but offers of campsite and boats, and free access to private lands, illustrates the generosity shown to pilgrims even in modern times.
This book opens eyes into the indigenous history of the river and the radical changes made since European arrival. This story of an eco-pilgrimage is luminous, informative and rather beautiful, Lucy Sussex, The Sunday Age
