Summary: The classic saga of Australia's far north
timeless because it is history, timelessly popular because it is so full of life, colour and adventure, the territory is the story of the first hundred years of white exploration, pioneering, and settlement in Australian tropic north. Based on the author's first-hand knowledge and experience, this is the result not only of years of research but of thousands of kilometres of strenuous travel. Cattle-droving over unknown wildernesses, tragic encounters with Aborigines, the efforts to establish settlements that were cut off from the world and inevitably covered by the relentless growth of vegetation, the first crossing if the continent, the building of the Overland telegraph Line, and the incredible lives of men and women of three generations - this is the stuff of the territory.
