Australia Twice Traversed – Volumes 1 and 2 by Ernest Giles

Australia Twice Traversed  -  Volumes 1 and 2 by Ernest Giles
Australia Twice Traversed - Volumes 1 and 2 by Ernest Giles
AUSTRALIA TWICE TRAVERSED: The Romance of Exploration, BEING A NARRATIVE COMPILED FROM THE JOURNALS OF FIVE EXPLORING EXPEDITIONS INTO AND THROUGH Central South Australia, and Western Australia, FROM 1872 TO 1876. BY ERNEST GILES Includes a full reproduction of this extraordinary and historic publication. Illustrated and complete with expedition maps. Ernest Giles was born on July 7, 1835 in England. At the age of 15, he emigrated to Australia, taking up residence in Adelaide. During the next few years, he took employment at various cattle and sheep stations, and developed a keen bush sense. He was the first European to see the rock formations of The Olgas, now known by their Aboriginal name of Kata Tjuta, and Lake Amadeus. He had wanted to name these Lake Ferdinand and Mt Mueller respectively, to honour his benefactor Baron Ferdinand von Mueller, however Mueller prevailed on him to instead honour the King of Spain and the Queen of Württemberg. He named the Gibson Desert, after his travelling companion Alfred Gibson who disappeared there. He crossed the desert from Port Augusta to Western Australia, then back again via a different route in order to search for any trace of Gibson. On a number of occasions, he was close to death from starvation or thirst, but managed to make his way through. He was made a fellow, and gold medallist, of the Royal Geographical Society of London. He published an account of his expeditions from 1872 to 1876 as Australia Twice Traversed. Despite his explorations, the various Australian governments at the time turned their respective backs on his achievements once they had been completed, and refused to patronise any further exploits or give him much in the way of financial reward. He made a number of other minor journeys, but ended his days as a clerk on the Western Australian goldfields. He eventually died of pneumonia, virtually forgotten, on 20 November 1897, and is buried at Coolgardie Cemetery. A massive set of books on the arduous expeditions of Giles, the tragic loss of Gibson in the desert and the many clashes with desert tribesmen. Complete with maps. Download the PDF ebook now (15MB)

Spinifex and Sand

Spinifex and Sand
Spinifex and Sand
David Carnegie was the fourth son of the Earl of Suffolk, England. After education as an engineer, David Carnegie worked on tea plantations in Ceylon, but joined the rush to Coolgardie when gold was discovered in Western Australia in 1892. Over a period of five years he prospected, and led several important exploring expeditions into some of Australia's most arid areas. In 1896-1897, the Hon. David Wynford Carnegie, born in 1871, youngest son of the Earl of Southesk, led one of the last great expeditions in the exploration of Australia. His route from Lake Darlôt to Halls Creek and return, took thirteen months and covered over three thousand miles. Carnegie financed his expedition from the results of a successful gold strike at Lake Darlôt. "Spinifex and Sand" is not a dry, daily journal but a remarkable account of discovery and survival in a most inhospitable part of the world. A fascinating account of pioneering exploits in the desert between Coolgardie and Hall's Creek and back again, against all odds and across inhospitable country that still remains wilderness today. Despite controversy over his treatment of the aborigines Carnegie's achievement is a monument to his survival skills. Well illustrated. Download now (2MB)

Photo essay of the Duyfken Replica built in Fremantle Western Australia. The Duyfken Duyfken (also Duifken or Duijfken) ("little dove" in English, "duifje" in modern Dutch) was a small Dutch ship built in the Netherlands. She was a fast, lightly armed ship probably intended for shallow water, small valuable cargoes, bringing messages, sending provisions, or privateering. In 1606, during a voyage of discovery from Bantam (Banten), Java, captained by Willem Janszoon, she encountered the Australian mainland and Janszoon is thus credited with the first authenticated European discovery of Australia.

The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders

The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders
The Life of Captain Matthew Flinders
Matthew Flinders (1774-1814) joined the Royal Navy at fifteen, later claiming to have been inspired by Robinson Crusoe. He served under William Bligh, and charted the Bass Strait in 1798. In 1801 he was commissioned to chart 'New Holland', and so became the first to circumnavigate the island he referred to as Australia. After being shipwrecked on the Barrier Reef and imprisoned for six years on Mauritius on suspicion of spying, he returned to England in 1810 and began work on A Voyage to Terra Australis. He died the day after his book and maps were published. This biography, published in 1914 to mark the centenary of his death, was the first comprehensive study of this central figure of Australian maritime exploration. The leading Australian historian Ernest Scott (1868-1939) based his account on material held in private collections in France as well as on documents deposited in Australian libraries. Includes details of the duplicity and spying conducted by Peron and de Freycinet whilst at Port Jackson in NSW. This book is well illustrated with additional colour photographs of places visited by Flinders added to the original edition. Order and download the eBook (9MB) now.
