'Clearly written and well structured, the volumes makes good reading for the interested general reader.' (Choice) -- U.S.A.
'Dr Powell has achieved an outstanding success. He writes with economy, power and humanity of all the main phases of the Territory's history, starting with the coming of the Aborigines . . . He moves easily from the broad sweep of the geographical and political context to the sharp focus of personality and action.' -- A. T. Yarwood, Hemisphere
'Factual, informative, and a wealth of invaluable references, yet couched in terms easily understandable to the academic, student or general reader . . . a must for everyone who feels their home is in "outback Australia".' -- Jack Ellis, Darwin News
