About this book

Darwin called his books "a mine of information", Swift and Defoe used his experiences as material for Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe, he reached Australia 80 years before Cook and sailed 200,000 miles in his lifetime, his books were bestsellers and introduced innumerable new words into English, but this hugely influential naturalist-explorer (1651-1715) has been neglected for a century.
