Here is the third volume in the Unfinished Voyages series. From 1881 Australia changed from a struggling colony to one with a thriving economy fueled by pastoral growth in the North, the pearling industry, and the discovery of gold. These developments affected the volume and direction of shipping, and the number of tragedies at sea increased dramatically.
