GREAT SOUTH LAND

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Outdoor Books -

This book, by Rob Mun­dle, cov­ers the pre-English set­tle­ment pe­riod of Aus­tralian his­tory, namely the early 1600s dis­cov­er­ies by Dutch mariners. In 1606 Willem Jan­szoon sailed and mapped the Gulf of Car­pen­taria, and was later fol­lowed by Har­tog and Tas­man, all of whom mapped other parts of Aus­tralia be­fore James Cook ar­rived on the east coast in 1770.A true rip­ping yarn.
