Product description

Review

‘Exquisitely written, its erudition lightly worn, its narrative lines compelling and its tone refreshingly warm and direct. This is the book of a scholar who has an impressive mastery of a complex and intricately detailed topic ... [a] particularly agreeable contribution from a writer of real talent.’

     —The Australian Society for French Studies

 

‘Clode’s finely researched work has several strengths but of particular appeal is her preparedness to develop a vibrant thesis.’ 

     —The Weekend Australian

 

‘An engaging and often exciting book ... By means of some very creative prose, Clode is able to bring these remarkable men to life and give her readers a sense of their temperament and abilities.’ 

     —The Canberra Times

 

‘A colourful and dextrously realised historical tapestry.’ 

     —Prof John Gascoigne, University of New South Wales

 

‘Packed with French romance and swashbuckling explorers.’

     —The Diamond Valley Leader

 

‘A powerful and compelling narrative, which should bring pleasure to the specialist as well as popular reader.’ 

     —Historical Records of Australian Science

 

‘Clode has the eye of a storyteller and shows great writing skill bringing the episodes to life.’ 

     —The Herald Sun
