The Blue-Eyed Aborigine by Rosemary Hayes

by stephenpalmersf

Entertaining, well-written and interesting YA novel based on the notorious wrecking in 1630 of the Dutch trading vessel Batavia (on which Mike Dash’s excellent Batavia’s Graveyard focussed). Uses material from the time, current research into Aborigine genetics and imagination to conjure up a great tale. Recommended.
