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".
Rezension: "For the nautically minded reader this well written and splendidly presented work offers a feast of information. It is also a wonderful adventure story, equal to any of the more familiar fictional accounts of life at sea in Britain's sailing navy."
