1606 marked the first European sighting of Australia, when the Dutch ship Duyfken landed on Cape York. This gripping book tells the stories of the seafaring explorers, shipwrecks and mutinies that followed, including the voyages of Torres and La Perouse, Dampier and DEntrecasteaux. These are tales of adventure, discovery and navigational triumph in the face of hardship, starvation and fear at the far end of the world.
