Description - Messing About in Earnest by Burningham Nick

Part travel writing, part social history and part personal reflection, Messing About In Earnest is a real gem. Using Governor Stirling's historic 1827 voyage up the Swan and Canning Rivers as his touchstone, Nick Burningham takes us on a fascinating trip up the river and back in time. On his way he beguiles the reader with comment and anecdote about people, places and subjects that he finds particularly interesting. Published in a popular small hardcover format complete with maps and drawings, Messing About In Earnest is perhaps the most witty and erudite history of Perth and the formation of the Swan River Colony that you will ever read.
