The Wreck of the Sailing Ship Netherby is the story of an 1866 shipwreck on the west coast of King Island, in southern Australia. It tells of a near miracle, vividly related by three different participants. Here was a ship with 413 emigrant passengers and a crew of 38, impaled on serrated reefs at night not far from the 1845 remains of the Cataraqui . The Cataraqui had lost 400 lives. The senior officers of the Netherby were instrumental in saving the lives of all those aboard their vessel, plus a baby born on the island to one of the rescued passengers!

Paperback, 56 pages, notes for the new edition, foreword, appendices including updated passenger list, photographs and maps.
