Shipwreck & Survival in Oman, 1763 The Fate of the Amstelveen and Thirty Castaways on the South Coast of Arabia Press Reviews

Shipwreck and Survival offers a highly readable account of a unique episode in eighteenth-century maritime history. The gripping details of the trek through the desert and Doornbos's personal journey of investigation - from the chance discovery of Eyks's account on an antiques market in southern France to the search for a 250-year old ship wreck via Google Earth - hold broad appeal to a wide readership. - Guido van Meersbergen in Mariner's Mirror
