description {

The Camino de Santiago is an ancient path from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, walked by tens of thousands of pilgrims since medieval times. Also known as the Way of St. James and the Camino Frances, it covers a distance of almost 800 km.

To absorb the history, to touch the old stone of the buildings and bridges, to walk the path built over the centuries, to see the variety if architectural styles, from Roman and Moorish to medieval, to Gothic and Renaissance, and to be immersed in some of the most breathtakingly beautiful landscapes - is a journey for heart and soul.

For many, the Camino is undertaken with a clear purpose, whether personal, emotional or spiritual. To others it is a challenge in terms of fitness and stamina, to achieve a goal. For experienced trekkers Kim and Malcolm Wells, it became a powerfully spiritual journey, and the common bond of peace and friendship formed among the many pilgrims they met was one of the most rewarding aspects of the experience.

Join the thousands of pilgrims who have walked the ancient Way of St James in Spain. Whether you’re an experienced trekker or an armchair traveller, this warmly written and beautifully illustrated journey will take you into the heart and soul of this historic walk.

Amid the Napoleonic Wars, France and Britain launched rival voyages of discovery to the Antipodes. Led by the outstanding naval captains Nicolas Baudin and Matthew Flinders, these expeditions were seen as vital for gathering geographical and scientific knowledge, yet both expeditions ended in personal disaster for their commanders.

Drawing extensively on original eye witness accounts, logs and journals, Ill-Starred Captains brings to life the tragic histories of the two men for whom "Fortune had changed seemingly beyond recall, from smiling goddess to right whore."

'[Anthony Brown's] ingenious interweaving of the tales of these two very different expeditions brings the story of Australia's exploration to life in a riveting and insightful new narrative'
- Tim Flannery.
