Product Description

Australian Shipwrecks: A Pictorial History brings together a unique collection of stories and photos. The book is not just about the lost ships, but contains tragic and often heroic stories of the men, women and children aboard them, and in some cases, their rescuers.

The accounts of these wrecks form part of our social history, and provide an insight to our past unknown to many. Australian Shipwrecks contents range from pre-colonial wrecks to modern steamships, with a special chapter dedicated to wartime losses.

Not only are Peter Christopher's stories well researched and fascinating, but the stunning collection of photos and sketches is presented in a single publication for the first time.
