The A – Z of Discovery and Exploration of the Pacific Islands
This book presents the familiar names of Laperouse, Bougainville, Cook and Dampier, as well as intriguing stories of The Bounty mutiny, scurvy, and the mysterious northwest Passage, Terra Australis Ignotia, and Davis Land. Also included are entries on first contacts, ships, navigational instruments, mapping, and bounty. The scene is carefully set in the introduction, the chronology spans several centuries, and the extensive bibliography offers a guide to further reading. This book is more than just dry facts; it is a whiff of salt air, the clash of empires, cross cultural beach encounters, and personal adventure.
