East Coast Encounters 1770 presents ten articles by different authors: some are local residents to the Sutherland Shire, others are academics who are recognised authorities in their field. Illustrated with a number of lively images, the articles explore an eclectic selection of themes, including Cook’s early life and the botanical collecting of Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander. A key part of this publication is the ‘view from the shore’, as Aboriginal contributors reflect on the impact of James Cook’s eight-day visit to Kurnell in 1770. The concluding article transports us to north Queensland to consider the interactions of the Endeavour crew with the Guugu Yimithirr people.
