Автор: Helen Laing

Описание

In 1829 a boat was shipwrecked off Cape York, northern Australia. On wild stormy seas the survivors sailed and rowed 1300 miles to Timor. One of the survivors was a young Scottish doctor, Thomas Braidwood Wilson.
Dr Wilson made nine voyages as a naval surgeon on convict ships before settling down as a pioneer farmer in the southern highlands of NSW.
This is a fictionalised account of his amazing life and adventures and the contribution he made to the new colony of Australia.
