Summary
Some of the most powerful moments in history occur when two people, two cultures, previously unknown to each other, come together for the first time. First Encounters is a book of first contact moments drawn from over 500 years of human exploration, adventure and discovery. Divided into sections such as 'Fabled Encounters in the Old World', 'The Great Southern Ocean', 'Fateful Encounters in the Heart of Africa', and 'First Contact in the Twentieth Century', this is a book filled with historical moments that have become the stuff of controversy, myth and legend
