Shipwreck and Survival on the South-East coast of Africa.


Heres an interesting little booklet with a difference,as it deals with the various “Shipwrecks and Survivals” along the South-East coast of Africa.It opens with an historical account of the first rounding of the Cape by the Phoenicians,under orders from Pharoah Necos (or Necho) At least twelve tragedies are discussed including the disastrous loss of the Grosvenor in 1782. A little different history for a change.
