Product Description

Australia's worst civil disaster – a sailing ship stranded only 150 yards off the deserted shore of King Island, isolated by rows of reefs; victims clinging, for up to two days, to the disintegrating vessel.

The story of the horrific 1845 shipwreck – 400 died; nine were miraculously rescued.

Winner of the Fellowship of Australian Writers Wilke Award, 1986, for an Australian book of non-fiction.
