The Society has reprinted the popular book "Explore the Flinders Ranges"
with over two hundred pages in colour and some black & white archival images.
The book explains the cultural and natural histories of the region as you experience them in your travels. Fascinating geological history is easily seen and explained as are the diverse plants and animals which inhabit these largely arid hills. There is plenty of evidence in art and stories of the long history of the Aborigines; the short period of European colonisation shows in many landscapes.
The Flinders is a place to pause and admire.
