A fascinating account of Matthew Flinders' remarkable expedition to Australia in HMS Investigator in 1801-1805; the lives of the principal members of the expedition; their work in charting the coast and discovering and illustrating Australia's unique plants and animals; and of how their journals and collections were received in England. Much of the information presented in this account of Flinders and his expedition is little known, which makes this book a significant addition to the literature on one of the most important figures and expeditions in Australian history.
