Those Dry-stone Walls

Bruce Munday
With photos by Kristin Munday


South Australia is blessed with beautiful stone – stone with colour, texture and light. Some of our stone structures have stood for 150 years, never touched by mortar.

The stories behind these stone walls are captured in this book, first published in December 2012 and launched by David Williamson.

The book sold out four times and was reprinted with revisions.

‘Those Dry Stone Walls’ is now out of print again. Wakefield Press and I have decided that rather than go to a fourth reprint I should write a second edition – a lot has happened since 2012 and there is a much more to say about this otherwise obscure topic. I have now completed this and expect that it will be published around mid-2023 (WhooHoo!). Should be good.
