Landfalls

Author:

Naomi J. Williams

Synopsis:

Brest, 1785: Two frigates set sail with over two hundred men on board, in a brave attempt to circumnavigate the globe. From Chile to Alaska, Monterey to the far east of Russia, the explorers made maps and discovered uncharted islands. Sometimes they were welcomed gloriously; sometimes they found themselves feared and repelled. Then, nearly four years after leaving France, the ships departed Botany Bay for the Solomon Islands - and were never heard from again... Based on historical fact, LANDFALLS details the exploits and heartbreaks not only of the ships' crews, but also of the indigenous people and other Europeans they met, as well as loved ones left waiting at home. It is a narrative told by a web of voices, sharing a kaleidoscope of hopes, dreams - and tragedies.
