'Sixteen-year-old Grace Bussell was hailed a hero for her part in rescuing the passengers and crew of the Georgette from sure drowning. She was called Australia's own Grace Darling. But the rescue would never have been possible without the guidance and leadership of Sam Isaacs, an Aboriginal stockman.

'This beautifully illustrated book is an evocative re-telling of the events surrounding the wreck of the Georgette off the south-west coast of Australia.' (From the publisher's website.)
