Quick Overview

Details

To the Torres Strait and Great Barrier Reef waters came ships from all nations, from Spanish galleons to trepang cutters and pearling luggers. In the wake of Captain Cook, Cook's Town became the doorway to the Palmer goldfield. The arrival of fortune seekers, adventurers, plantation owners and beachcombers in this region meant life would never be the same again for its original people. This is the untold story of the Torres Strait Islands and Cape York Peninsula in a text that abounds with strange tales, lively personal historians, thrilling detail and anecdote. First published in 2001
