Description

FLINDERS brings to life the fascinating story of this exceptional maritime explorer from the drama of epic voyages and devastating shipwrecks; his part in the naming of Australia; his cruel imprisonment by the French on Mauritius for six long and harrowing years; the heartbreaking separation from his beloved wife; and the comfort he got from his loyal cat, Trim; to his tragic death at just forty, before ever seeing the publication of his life's work. Flinders is a true hero whose name is forever woven into the fabric of Australian history. This is a gripping adventure biography in the style of the bestselling BLIGH: MASTER MARINER.
