Voyage to Disaster by Henrietta Drake-Brockman

Book Description

Mutiny, murder, rape, torture; a priceless treasure fuelling the basest human greed; a courageous journey in search of rescue-the story of the Batavia, wrecked off the coast of Western Australia in 1629, is part of the myth and legend of Australian history. Henrietta Drake-Brockman was determined to unearth the facts. Ten years of meticulous research resulted in Voyage to Disaster, a historical tour de force comprising the complete journals of Francisco Pelsaert translated from the Old Dutch by E. D. Drok, together with a revealing biography of Pelsaert, a man of many dimensions-writer, historian, administrator.
