Description

“As an island nation, Australia has always been fundamentally dependent on shipping services to connect it to the outside world, and to carry out trade and communications along its coastline. However, the waters around Australia have proved treacherous to mariners and, since the wreck of the English ship Trial in 1622, thousands of vessels have been lost up to the present day.”–Back cover.
