AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1826, the Astrolabe sets sail from France in search of two French ships which disappeared on their vaoyage to the Pacific in 1788....

After months of deprivation, they finally find the answers they have been searching for...on a sinister tropical island.

'Based on the ship's journal of the explorer Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville of the historic Astrolabe, this is the story of Lucien, the ten-year-old cabin boy and their three year adventure, which takes them from France all the way to Australia and back again. ' (Publication summary)
