Matthew Flinders was determined to map the entire coast of the continent we now call Australia.
His story is packed to the gunwales with adventure – storms and shipwrecks, death and danger, a race to beat the French.
But more than this, it is a story of loyalty to his crew, love for his wife, and affection for the brave little cat who sailed with him.
