The Settler’s Lot

After many years of research and the discovery of historical documents locked away in a fireproof safe, a new book “The Settler’s Lot” by the author Henry Tankard was launched over the past week. The difficulties faced by the founders of the Mildura colony, State Government and the early settlers are clearly outlined in this new book and we catch up with Henry in this episode to chat about his venture.

If you’d like a copy of the “The Settler’s Lot”, you can purchase it at Collins Book sellers in Langtree Ave Mildura or from the Tourist Information Centre on the corner of Deakin Ave and 12th street.

  1. I look forward to reading Henry’s book and judging by your interview Ian, it will be a most interesting and informative account of our early history.

  2. Could you please give details of publisher and ISBN number so my local library can order this book
