Men and Cattle: history of development in northern Australia

I found a collection of small audio documentaries recently. They were on cassette so the quality after 30 odd years isn’t great. The talent is historian Peter Forrest.

Men and Cattle is a history of development  of the cattle industry in northern Austraia but touches on a lot of other themes.
