Tribal guerrillas : the Santals of West Bengal and the Naxalite movement by Edward Duyker( Book )

Nature's argonaut : Daniel Solander, 1733-1782 : naturalist and voyager with Cook and Banks by Edward Duyker( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature's Argonaut is the first full biography of this important eighteenth century naturalist who now only circled the globe under sail but ranged as far north as the Arctic as far south as Tierra del Fuego. Edward Duyker pays particular attention to Solander's role as a naturalist on the Endeavour during the ship's voyage along the east coast of Australia and to his pioneering contribution to the scientific study of the new continent. The author has also provided a comprehensive account of Solander's life and his contribution to the foundations of modern plant and animal taxonomy. The life of Daniel Solander, stamped with the enquiring spirit of the Enlightenment, is one of the grand adventures of the eighteenth century. Aside from the historic Endeavour voyage, Solander's Arctic travels, his involvement in industrial espionage in England on behalf of Sweden, his thwarted love for the daughter of his mentor Linnaeus and his friendships with such men as Joseph Banks, James Cook, Samuel Johnson, Matthew Boulton, and Benjamin Franklin make Solander an exciting biographical subject."
Citizen Labillardière : a naturalist's life in revolution and exploration (1755-1834) by Edward Duyker( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques-Julien Houtou de Labillardiere was one of the great traveller-naturalists of the eighteenth century. He is most famous for his account of his voyage to the South Seas with Bruny d'Entrecasteaux in 1791-93 in search of La Perouse. Labillardiere's Relation was an international bestseller in its day, helping to usher the southern continent into the European imagination." "In researching this biography, Edward Duyker revisited many of the naturalist's landfalls around the world. He also examined a wide range of archival and museum collections to piece together Labillardiere's correspondence and observations. The result is the first comprehensive study of the naturalist, revealing a committed republican who was shaped by the turbulent years of revolutionary and Napoleonic France."--BOOK JACKET
A woman on the goldfields : recollections of Emily Skinner, 1854-1878 by Emily Skinner( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emily Skinner - vibrant, observant, eternally young-at-heart - emigrated from Britain to Australia in 1854. Not only did she keep a ship-board journal - the story of her trip from the old world to the new - she later recorded her reminiscences of a colourful life as a miner's wife. Here, published for the first time, is Emily's account of a voyage half-way around the world to marry her sweetheart. She evokes the wild storms, sea sickness, the malaise and boredom, the gossip and intrigue. Her impressions of the young town of Melbourne follow, as well as her recollections of what is now the town of Beechworth and the surrounding goldfields of the Ovens and Buckland valleys. Her simple joy at the strangeness and novelty of the young colony is evident as she brings to life the raw energy of the 'rough and ready' goldmining settlements where the population lived under canvas amidst the deep shafts and coveted claims
Dumont d'Urville : explorer & polymath by Edward Duyker( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explorer Jules-Sébastien-César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842) is sometimes called France's Captain Cook. Born less than a year after the beginning of the French Revolution, he lived through turbulent times. He was an erudite polymath: a maritime explorer fascinated by botany, entomology, ethnography and the diverse languages of the world."--Jacket

François Péron : an impetuous life : naturalist and voyager by Edward Duyker( Book )

An officer of the blue : Marc-Joseph Marion Dufresne, South Sea explorer, 1724-1772 by Edward Duyker( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French explorer Marion Dufresne was the man who reached Tasmania before the English. His expedition was the first to encounter the Tasmanian Aborigines and was a precursor of the great voyages of La Perouse, d'Entrecasteaux, Baudin and d'Urville. France was not idle in her search for the Southland at the time of James Cook's great expeditions. It is puzzling that Marion's name is absent not only from Australian but also from French reference works. His life of high adventure demands description--early success as a Breton corsair, a crucial part in the daring rescue from Scotland of Bonnie Prince Charlie, numerous voyages to the East, entrepreneurial boldness, discovery of the most westerly islands in the Indian Ocean and an early visit to New Zealand. He was surely one of the most colorful characters in our maritime history, and his story is told here with verve and skill

A dictionary of sea quotations : from ancient Egypt to the present by Edward Duyker( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Dictionary of Sea Quotations surveys nearly four millennia of literature, including novels, poems, songs and religious texts, to show the extraordinary diversity of the human experience of the sea, the passions that it awakens and the hold it has on our imagination. Historian Edward Duyker draws upon the annals of sea exploration, the carnage of naval war and excerpts from the memoirs of admirals, yachtsmen, castaways, naturalists, pirates, privateers, U-boat commanders, surfers and statesmen. (Dust jacket)
Père Receveur : Franciscan, scientist and voyager with Lapérouse by Edward Duyker( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Pere Receveur's grave remains a tangible vestige of the visit of Laperouse's expedition, the enigmatic Franciscan interred within has in many respects been defined by it. For many Sydneysiders he is simply: "The Frenchman buried at La Perous in 1788". Yet from his letters home - which appear in English herein for the first time - Receveur emerges as a man of true scientific curiousity, energy, warmth and familial love. Edward Duyker shares what he has glimpsed through these records, but also the circustances of Receveur's death and the role of his tomb as a focus of community cultural and religious life."--Back cover
