AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The first sailing ships that entered the world of the Indigenous people of Botany Bay and Port Jackson caused fear and wonder. '

'They thought they were giant birds, monsters, or floating islands and that the figures climbing the masts were devils or possums.'

'This book reveals the significant role Aboriginal men, and some women, played in Australia’s early maritime history. Its focus is the Indigenous people who sailed on English ships through Port Jackson to destinations throughout the world in the period 1790-1850...' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
