Publisher Description

Settlement of the Doomed highlights some of history's lesser known colonial stories, in twelve brief, riveting and informative stories from across the globe.


History they say is written by the winners. We read about the first settlers arriving in Sydney Cove with modern icon the Opera House in our minds. But the world is scattered with the remnants of other, forgotten settlements. Here in Settlements of Doom are twelve tales from the annals of history’s many failures that have as much to tell us about human nature as anything that smacks of success.
