In this important and long-overdue history, Barker and Ondaatje examine the significance of North West Cape for Australia-US relations and Australian politics, but pay special attention to the town of Exmouth that was uniquely created to support the base. Drawing on archival records and oral interviews, A Little America in Western Australia brings to light the experiences of Australian civilians and US Navy personnel in a fascinating and often humorous portrait of life at the Cape.
