More than 300 years ago, a young Dutch sailor named Abel Tasman stood on the prow of a ship he and his crew had sailed across wild, uncharted waters. In the distance, through a shroud of mist, the rugged outline of steep hills rose from the ocean waves. Could this be Terra Austra...lis - the great southern land? Abel Tasman and his crew were most likely the first Europeans the Aboriginal people of Australia and the Maori of New Zealand had ever seen. Join the journey and discover the legacy left behind. * By the winners of 2016's supreme children's book award - the Margaret Mahy Book of the Year. * There is little available specifically for children on Abel Tasman - Maria Gill's book is a great addition * Marco Ivancic's illustrations are simply superb, helping tell the story in a brilliant evocation of the era * The story is told as historical fiction, but includes several pages of interesting facts at the end
