This recording follows the fortunes of the Durack family as they build an empire of cattle land across the desolate stretches of central Australia. What begins as a family history expands into a full-blown biography written with painstaking detail and honesty. Jenny Seedsman manages to breathe life into a minutiae-filled narrative, which is often as dry as the Australian landscape. She has a flair for bringing the rough characters of the bush to life and getting the accents just right. Listening to the Durack saga teaches the listener a great deal about nineteenth-century Australia. D.L.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 97]
