This is a full and revealing account of the perilous and adventurous course of the Northern Territory; a comprehensive account of its history which debunks the myths and makes human both the high and low points. The Northern Territory is a wondrous place of bizarre natural history and eccentric personalities; of success and failure; of great unrest and great triumph. In Far Country, Alan Powell, historian of the Northern Territory University, presents the place and its story with skill and simplicity.show more
