This prize-winning account of the remarkable Snowy Scheme is available again for the 70th anniversary. The Snowy Scheme was an extraordinary engineering feat carried out from 1949 to 1974. The Snowy Mountains Scheme was also a site of post-war social engineering that helped create a diverse multicultural nation. McHugh's in-depth interviews 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.
