Fortuyn's Ghost by Mark Greenwood

Book Description

From the award-winning Mark Greenwood ("The Legend of Lasseter's Reef" and "The Legend of Moodyne Joe") comes "Fortuyn's Ghost", a haunting tale of shipwreck on the high seas. In 1724, the Dutch East India Company ship Fortuyn vanished after leaving the Cape of Good Hope, bound for Batavia. Stowed below deck was the Company's trading cash (a rich cargo of silver ingots, bullion and coins), all sealed in ten oak money chests. "Fortuyn's Ghost" imagines the doomed ship's fateful voyage to its likely end on Western Australia's treacherous Shipwreck Coast - a place well known for nautical hauntings.

Mayflower by Mark Greenwood Mayflower, Hardback (August 2014)

The three-thousand-mile trip was crowded and dangerous, and there was trouble when the passengers settled in Plymouth for a bitter, cold winter. However, their determination was ultimately rewarded; the Pilgrims adjusted to the New England climate thanks to help from local Native Americans and soon celebrated their first harvest in the New World.
