Summary

First published in two-volumes in 1814, this is the enthralling account of the first circumnavigation of Australia. Edited and introduced by Tim Flannery, Flinders' stories of meeting and communicating with Aborigines, of the scrub and wilderness, and of the difficulties that he and his sailors faced still bristle with energy and immediacy two hundred years later.
