Colonial Settlers on the River Torrens with Roger Irvine

Colonial Settlers on the River Torrens by Roger Irvine (Wakefield Press )

Join author and academic Dr Roger Irvine as he discusses his new book Colonial Settlers on the River Torrens, published by Wakefield Press in February 2019. The book examines the lives of the Kaurna People and the first generation of European settlers on the upper reaches of the River Torrens in the present day suburbs of Campbelltown, Paradise and Athelstone.

This lushly illustrated book includes a definitive biography of local identity, Charles James Fox Campbell, who lent his name to both the suburb and the City of Campbelltown, South Australia.
