About this book

Documents the sometimes dramatic changes that have recently occured in Australia's tropical savannas after having been mostly cattle country for over a century. Changes have mainly been in the form of the 'thickening up' of vegetaion and the spread of 'woody weeds' but has also occured in many less obvious trends. This fascinating book focuses on one part of this immense region: the Victoria River District of the Northern Territory. It tracks changes in the environment from the time of the explorers to the present day, and features remarkable pairs of historical and modern photos that reveal how the country has changed.
