The Fatal Impact : The Invasion of the South Pacific 1767-1840
Author: Moorehead, Alan ; Hard Cover + DJ ; 1966 ; 230 pages ; English
This hard cover book is about the history of exploration and colonization of the South Pacific, including Australia and Tahiti between the years 1767 and 1840. Captain Cook and Captain Philip are prominently featured in the text. The story tells about the exploitation of the peoples and wildlife of islands, the continent of Australia and the Antarctic. Lots of B&W illustrations throughout and really interesting reading. This book is in excellent condition, except that the DJ has some wear on the edges and a water stain at the top of the back cover.
