The Coastal Pioneers3
This book is dedicated to the people who had a desire to search the unknown, the sailors, navigatorsand the captains, who sailed into the unknown seas, around an island, which was called in olden times,
by the Hebrews
by the Chinese, and many other names, by other nations and civilisations. All these names were allocated to this land, in the south beyond the Indian Ocean, long before Christ,and certainly 2000 years before Captain Cook “discovered”
Terra Australis, the “Great South Land” - a landfirst thought to be worthless, and then found to be productive by early civilisations.To the authors, who through many years of research, uncovered clear evidence that Cook did not“discover” Australia - but merely
“claimed it for the crown”
- I say thank you.To the people of the first fleet, both convict and free men, who struggled with the wilderness, came hereand cut out a piece of the jungle and made the first “modern” settlement at Sydney Cove, you have given usa heritage to be proud of.To the people who went north, to discover gold in a country where the trees were large and thepossibilities for freedom just as big, you are what the second part of this book is all about.If you were born in Australia – you are part of this heritage. If you were born elsewhere and migratedhere, you are also part of this heritage.If you are reading this book, you are charged with the responsibility to make the truth known, about our real, true heritage, and how we can continue to make this nation – the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit, aplace to be proud of, for future generations. The Scriptures says:
The truth shall set you free”.
I trust that reading this book will lead you to that truth and it will set you free and give you the desire togo on and do greater things for Australia.

New Light Ministries & Consulting Services Pty. Ltd. is pleased to release the eleventh book in the seriesby Jeffry David Camm, called: -
“THE COASTAL PIONEERS”.
The early settlers and pioneers of Australia had to suffer hardship and isolation for many months, as theyetched out a place for themselves in this harsh country.History shows not only did they succeed, but that they were instrumental in establishing a country whichwas to become a great nation – a nation referred to as “
The Lucky Country”.
As I was doing research for this book, I have come across many interesting facts, by other authors/researchers, which have drawn me to conclude that this is not the right place to start this story. The
that we were taught about in schools in the 1940’s - 1950’s were clearly not the sailors andexplorers who discovered the coastline of the Great South Land.
Evidence clearly shows that earlier explorers had visited this coastline in Old Testament times and left their mark(s) to prove it. Please read on and find out for yourselves
