Confessions Of A Beachcomber

This has been celebrated by romantics the world over as everyone's ideal of living on a deserted tropical island. Today, its scientific detail of the area's unique beauty earns it a special place among naturalists. E.J. Banfield's classic account of Dunk Island within the Great Barrier Reef is reproduced here in this definitive edition of the 1908 text which includes all the original 53 illustrations. Humorous and anecdotal, philosophical and poetic, this is a delightful ode to a Paradise Found. An introduction by Banfield's biographer Michael Noonan sets the scene for the story of a man who escaped to the island and "shook the dust of civilisation off his feet".
