Description / Abstract: The Victoria River country of the Northern Territory is renowned for its enormous cattle stations, beautiful landscapes, huge personalities and its wild history. Dr Darrell Lewis knows this country intimately. Drawing on more than forty years’ research in the Victoria River back country, Darrell’s The Victoria River District Doomsday Book (VRDDB) is an unparalleled achievement by one of the Territory’s most rigorous and prolific historians. VRDDB is an exhaustive dictionary-style account of the region’s history, seen through the lens of the dozens of cattle stations and hundreds of pastoral industry workers of which it is comprised. The Victoria River District Doomsday Book is essential for anyone with an interest in the people and places of the semi-mythical north-west Northern Territory.
