Shipwrecks! The very word conjures up evocative images of disaster, terror, passion, violence, mutiny and heroism – perhaps explaining their enduring allure.

In Unfinished Voyages: Western Australian Shipwrecks 1622-1850, professional maritime archaeologist, Graeme Henderson, details stories of the countless traders, whalers, emigrants, convicts, mutineers, slavers and pirates, who had fateful encounters with Australia’s notorious shipwreck coast between 1622 and 1850.

Lavishly illustrated, with easy-to-follow charts locating each wreck as well as a wealth of underwater photographs and new information on the shipwrecks of Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, this long-awaited updated edition of Unfinished Voyages is an invaluable guide for everyone interested in the drama, adventure and romance of Western Australia’s rich maritime history.
