The book was chosen from a shortlist of three, which also included: Warning: The Story of Cyclone Tracy (Sophie Cunningham, Text) and A History Written in Metal (Steven Farram, Historical Society of the Northern Territory).

The Chief Minister’s Northern Territory History Book Award is administered by the NT Library and is presented annually to ‘the most significant book on Northern Territory history published in the preceding year’. For more information, visit the website here.
