Author Talk - Rob Mundle

Council Presents a Talk By 
Rob Mundle introducing
The First Fleet
Rob Mundle's FIRST FLEET tells the extraordinary story of the eighteenth century convoy of eleven ships that left England on 13 May 1787 for the 'lands beyond the seas'. Hear the story of what happened during the 252 days at sea.
It’s the story of great leadership, remarkable seamanship, bravery and one of the greatest maritime voyages of all time. Despite beliefs to the contrary, all 11 ships completed the passage across some of the world’s most inhospitable oceans, and reached their goal. The loss of life during the near nine months at sea also defied the critics’ dire predictions – fewer than 70 died.
