In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
'Rivers have long run in the blood of Australians'.
Australia is an arid place, the second driest continent on the planet. Yet it is covered with waterways, from Tasmania's Franklin River to the Ord in Western Australia, the Alligator rivers of Kakadu and Melbourne's Yarra. Givers of life, they are also crucibles of culture, a means of transportation, sites for play, sources of power, bringers of joy and anguish. More than any other part of the landscape, rivers demonstrate the interconnectedness of life.
In this broad-ranging survey of ten Australian waterways and river systems, Ian Hoskins, award-winning author of Coast: A History of the New South Wales Edge, presents a history of our complex connections to water.
