Book Description ABC, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good. ABC Books, Sydney, 2006. Softcover (16 x 24 cm), xx, 297 pages. ISBN: 0733317014. Very Good condition. Covers bumped, lightly creased at edges & corners. Page edges foxing/soiled. "Almost two hundred years ago a young British sailor carved his ship's name, 'Mermaid', on a Kimberley coast boab tree - it is still there today, probably Australia's oldest living graffiti. It also marked the beginning of an extraordinary period of optimism and adventure in Australia's history. The race to survey and settle Australia's west and northern coastlines was the equivalent of last century's 'space race', as France, Britain and Holland competed commercially for antipodean bases after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. "The Mermaid Tree" is the extraordinary story of the little-known successors to Cook, Bligh, La Perouse, and Flinders, why they did it, what they got out of it and the haphazard global politics they had to endure. King, Freycinet, d'Urville, Wickham, Stokes, Grey, Blackwood, Yule, Kennedy and Stanley are not well known, but all were key to unlocking so much of Australia's development. And it started with 'Mermaid'. Weight (before packaging): 480g. Bookseller Inventory # 2581
