Publication Details

McHugh, S. A. The Snowy - The People Behind The Power. 1 ed. Melbourne: William Heinemann Australia, 1989.


The construction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme between 1949 and 1974 still ranks as one of the world's greatest engineering feats. For Australia, it marked a passage from the Old World to the New and became a monument to multiculturalism along the way.

With over 300 photographs and based on interviews with hundreds of those who were part of the scheme The Snowy is the definitive account of this unique project which was, in the words of Professor Manning Clark, 'an imspiration to all who dream dreams about Australia'
