I wonder if someone can help me?

I am researching for a filming project in the Murchison. I have just purchased a copy of the Gascoyne-Murchison Outback Pathways book, which I believe originally came bundled with a CD. However, only one run of the CD’s was ever made, and these ran out over 12 months ago, and no more were produced.

Does anybody happen to have a copy of the CD that I can obtain a copy of please?

Merry Christmas to everyone, and please drive safely

cheers
Laurie

I didn't know it ever came with a CD Laurie. I received my book some years ago, and it did not have any provision for or mention of a CD. The only date reference on the book is "Copyright 2006".

The Golden Quest Discovery Trail book did come with two CDs and that is clearly part of the publication.

The web page that I ordered from has a free CD when you order the book .... then says that the CD is out of stock ... But it looked like the individual CD was out of stock - not the combination .... but it was wrong :-)

Same theme as the Goldfields CDs. Acted "interviews" with people from the past.

Sorry I can't help with it. While the 'stories' add another dimension, you could probably find similar stories through research through other media.

Yes. Just looking for anything that may be obscure, but of historical interest. The book appears to be a bit scarce on the type of material I'm looking for, but the Interpretive Signage will have most of the answers. But, I want to be prepared as much as possible rather than reactive to what we find as we go.

Thank you for your reply.

cheers

Doesn't that State Library hold copies of all publications and would this extend to the CD I wonder?

I have thought of that. I live in Albany, so a visit to the local State library could be in order. However, some of these things are also only available to be viewed in house in Perth. This is just the start of the journey. A visit to Hesperian Press is also anticipated.

Thank you.

Bunbury Library has one on its shelves at the moment. You would be able to have it transferred to Albany library to borrow if you are a member.

Not sure if CD is part of the deal on any of the ones listed in the State Library system as the are only listed as Print Material. If it had a CD as part of the package it would be listed as Print/Audio material.

Hope this helps

Motherhen,

I should have added that if you do a search through the State Library of WA website, it will list all copies that they hold. The only ones you can't physically borrow are the 3rd Floor reference materials. These you need to look at in the Main Library Research Room. You can take a USB and they will loan you a camera to take photos of materials you may want copies of.

Any of the other copies they hold can and will be transferred around the State and, I believe in some cases mailed to you.

It is a great resource to access if you are into research and trip planning etc.

Cheers

Thanks Anthony

The search would indicate that whilst the book is available, they don't have the CD. However, I will follow that up as per your suggestion.

Thank you.

What about checking with the Shires of Geraldton & Carnarvon as they may have copies of the CD in their library or historical societies?

Cheers

I travelled along some of the Wool Wagon Pathway earlier this year and the Interpretive Signage was very hard to read in most places, as they were either faded or surface had become crazed.

The sun was always over your shoulder when trying to read them.

I enjoyed the scenery and the drive all the same.
Would have loved to spend more time in the area, but the weather kept me moving.

Thank you Blue

Any information is good information, and gives me something to plan what and how we are going to approach our project.

Merry Christmas.
cheers
