Abstract:

This work created a world sensation. The author recounts his early life, his education and his coming to Australia. The adventures were vouched for as fact, but as narrated they are beyond the bounds of credibility. After being shipwrecked in the Arafura Sea, he reaches Australia and marries the woman 'Yamba'. He spends nearly 30 years among the Aborigines of Northern and N-W Australia. The author, born in Switzerland in 1844, has been called the modern 'Munchausen' and this work has been compared to Defoe's Robinson Crusoe.
