The Western Australian Explorers’ Diaries Project, incorporating the Historical Records of Western Australia. “The landscapes and waters, the aboriginal people and their place names, as well as the plants and animals of south-western Australia, were all noted by John Septimus Roe. Naval officer, hydrogrpaher, explorer, founding Surveyor General, settler and father, Roe helped make Western Australia what it is today, while leaving a record of what it was at first contact by European settlers. Roe’s expedition reports, field notes and maps have been annotated, summaries and indexed in The Western Australian Explorations of John Septimus Rose 1829-1849. The reports are complemented by expert analyses of native plant species, native animal species, and navigation and surveying. This volume in the Western Australian Exploration series is a companion to Western Australian Exploration Volume 1 1826-1835 and Western Australian Exploration 1836-1845.” (from jacket)
