Inhaltsangabe: Racy, yet scholarly, this biography captures the life of King and his five hazardous voyages to reveal his significant achievements as Australia's third great hydrographer after Cook and Flinders. King was, as the author puts it, "naval officer, explorer, hydrographer, adminstrator, astronomer, geologist, artist, writer and pastralist".
About the Author: Marsden Hordern is a graduate of Sydney University and founder of a print gallery. His life-long association with the sea includes naval service in peace and war, and much ocean sailing. In early Sydney-Hobart yacht races, he used instruments that King would have understood perfectly.
