Joy Lefroy and illustrator Marion Duke have produced a delightfully told and exquisitely illustrated children's picture book telling the story of C.Y. O'Connor and the building of the pipeline that brought water to the parched goldfields exactly a century ago. The colossal pipeline was built between Mundaring Weir and Kalgoorlie and is considered an engineering feat. The construction of the pipeline, life on the goldfields, and the numerous characters involved in the project are presented in this engaging picture book. It also includes an informative glossary, and corresponding Teachers Notes are available on the Fremantle Arts Centre Press' website (http: //members.iinet.net.au/%7Efacp/home.html).
