Summary
Author, Henry Van Zanden, released his fisrt book, 1606 Discovery of Australia, in 1997. This inspired him to write a series of books, titled, Australia Discovered. After writing over a thousand draft pages for this monumental work, the series, Australia Discovered gradually took shape. in 2012, The Lost White Tribes of Australia Part one: 1656 The First Settlement of Australia, was published. The original draft included stories of shipwrecked sailors in North-Western Australia. These were not included in the first book as they deserved a more thorough investigation in Part Two, Individuals of an Alien White Race. Four things prompted me to write this book: 1. Lieutenant George Grey embarked upon an expedition into the Kimberley where he came across individuals of an alien white race as well as numerous examples of rock art that resembled Dutch sailors. 2. Bigge Island has some amazing examples of rock art including Dutch sailors in a boat smoking pipes as well as men carrying buckets, wearing hats, shoes and clothing. I came to the compelling conclusion that Dutch sailors had become shipwrecked probably during the late 17th century in the Kimberley region. 3. New evidence has been uncovered on the Vergulde Draeck and Zuydorp shipwrecks. 4. A discovery of a 1767 Dutch shipwreck in Victoria and evidence of Dutch contact in NSW in 1767/8, challenges our understanding of our early contact history. -- backcover
