Stefano Castaways by Stefano Scurla

Book Description

Translated in its entirety for the first time, The Stefano Castaways is the story of Michele Baccich and Giovanni Iurich - the sole survivors of the barque Stefano, which was shipwrecked of Australia's northwest coast in 1875 - as recounted to Canon Stefano Scurla of Ragusa (now Dubrovnik), upon their return to Dalmatia. Presented here in the original Italian as well as an English translation, Canon Scurla's account of Baccich and Iurich's dramatic tale is augmented by important historical documents and critical essays. It provides an authoritative and remarkable glimpse into a lost world of Aboriginal tribes and their intimate knowledge of a harsh landscape together with an absorbing record of the manners and society of early colonial Western Australia.
