In 2001 an expedition of seven Australians set out from Western Australia to find the final resting places of two famous exploration vessels. The French frigate 'Uranie' lost in the Falkland Islands in 1820 and William
Dampier's ship 'Roebuck' wrecked at Ascension Island. What they discovered in their search was far beyond their expectations, perhaps even their imaginations. 265 x 195mm., pp. 239, illustrated endpapers, black & white and colour plates, index.
