Summary

A breathtaking story of disaster, courage and passion and that Top End spirit that never says die.  

Territory is the story of Henrietta Southern, a young Englishwoman who trades her war-torn homeland for a place of wild tropical storms and searing heat, crocodile-infested rivers and barren red wilderness. Six months after the bombing of Darwin, she joins her new husband, Spitfire pilot Terence Galloway, for a new life on his Northern Territory cattle station.  

It is also the story of their sons. Of Malcolm and Kit, two brothers who grow up in the harsh but beautiful environment and share a baptism of fire as young men in the jungles of Vietnam. 

And what of the Dutch East Indies treasure ship which foundered off Western Australia in 1629? How is the Galloway family's destiny linked with Batavia's horrific tale of mutiny and murder...?  

From the blazing inferno that was Darwin on 19 February 1942 to the devastation of Cyclone Tracy, from the red desert to the tropical shore, Territory is a mile-a-minute tale from one of Australia's best loved writers.

Excellent listen, super character development, but

Audible you really need to have a listen and fix the editing issues. There are places where there are words spoken then a blank spot and then words spoken again with the narrator carrying on. Also, volume goes up and down.

Aside from that, and don’t let that stop you, really an excellent listen. Character development is so brilliant! And that moment when you realize how the whole story and it’s different threads and characters come together...priceless.

John Gregg does a bang up job switching from his own British accent to an Australian accent to the accent of the aboriginals.
