How the mighty clipper ships transformed Australia from convict outpost to a nation.

July 1852.

It had been six weeks since the 932 passengers and sixty-man crew aboard the clipper Marco Polo had left England bound for Melbourne. They had just crossed the northern latitude of the Roaring Forties, some 350 nautical miles south of the Cape of Good Hope.

Suddenly a fearsome Southern Ocean storm charged in from beyond the western horizon and locked Marco Polo in its jaws. In a matter of hours, the moderate seas turned to mountainous breaking combers, accompanied by a howling and callously cold wind, quite possibly laced with flurries of snow.

Abject fear filled the minds of the passengers huddled below deck in an alien world.

But they weren’t alone when it came to their anxiety: even members of the crew were unnerved. The end of this nightmare could not come soon enough for all on board.

'With [Mundle's] flair for rich description and his attention to even the smallest details, he imbues his narrative with a colour not usually found in historical nonfiction.' The Australian

His book, Fatal Storm, became an international bestseller. It is published in six languages and has sold well over 200,000 copies a remarkable achievement for this category in publishing.
