Author Tour: The Great Cactus War

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

For most of us it’s hard to imagine a time when some of the Western Downs’ most productive farmland was rendered almost useless by a forest of indestructible cactus, yet this is the true story that Terry Domico recounts in his book The Great Cactus War.

Journey with Terry as he recalls the history of the greatest plant invasion on earth, and how the region’s farmland was saved by the introduction of a tiny insect from the South America.

Join Terry Domico as he tours the Western Downs region with his book, The Great Cactus War: true story of the greatest plant invasion in human history.
