Lance Paterson has now filled the gap for a comprehensive and authoritative guide to ships and shipwrecks on the Queensland coast.
This last volume of Wreck-ollections: Ships and Shipwrecks in Queensland Waters uncovers another 300 vessels and incidences, making good use of digital resources not available for earlier volumes.
The format is again alphabetical by vessel name, allowing easy access to tales of accident, mismanagement, and loss of shipping to natural resources. Newspaper and other sources are included with each entry. adding research value are a chronology, event locations, a list of known owners and persons in charge of vessels, and a comprehensive sources list.
A rich resource for marine historians and family and local history researchers, Volume 4 of Wreck-ollections: Ships and Shipwrecks in Queensland Waters will also fascinate readers with stories of survival and tragedy from the 1830s to the recent past.
