Synopsis

'Rob Mundle is a master of the maritime narrative' - Sydney Morning Herald


Matthew Flinders was the first to circumnavigate and chart the treacherous Terra Australis coastline ? he is the man who put Australia on the map.

Flinders brings to life the fascinating story of this exceptional maritime explorer ? from the drama of epic voyages and devastating shipwrecks; his part in the naming of Australia; his cruel imprisonment by the French on Mauritius for six long and harrowing years; the heartbreaking separation from his beloved wife; and the comfort he got from his loyal cat, Trim; to his tragic death at just forty, before ever seeing the publication of his life's work. Flinders is a true hero whose name is forever woven into the fabric of Australian history.

This is a gripping adventure biography in the style of the bestselling Bligh: Master Mariner.
