Terra Australis Incognita

Miriam Estensen


Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Paperback

This fascinating volume offers a new look at the Spanish voyages of exploration that sailed from South America in the 16th and early 17th centuries. Using small wooden ships and only the most basic navigation instruments, these brave sailors set out in search of the legendary 'Great South Land' - and along the way they discovered the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and the south coast of New Guinea. “Terra Australis Incognita” tells the stories of those who took up the challenges of discovering new lands, cultures, and riches. Among the cast of historical characters featured in this superb volume are Quiros, a visionary priest who dreamt of building a New Jerusalem on today's Vanuatu; Bilebanarra, chief of the Solomon Islanders; and Luis Baez de Torres, a skilled navigator, great leader, and the discoverer of the Torres Straight between Australia and New Guinea.
