An evocative retelling of the wreck of the SS Georgette off the coast of Western Australia in 1876, this inspiring account chronicles the heroic efforts of 16-year-old Grace Bussell and Sam Isaacs, an Aboriginal stockman. Lavishly illustrated, this mixed media book - which includes collages, computer-generated images, and oil paintings - depicts Bussell and Isaacs as they rescue 50 passengers and crew. Highlighting the courage and leadership of these two individuals, this fictionalised narrative of historical events gives due credit to a previously unsung hero and demonstrates why Bussell became known as 'Australia's own Grace Darling'.
