AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What would you do if a ship was wrecked just off your favourite beach?

'In December 1876, when the steamship Georgette ran aground near Margaret River in Western Australia, teenager Grace Bussell did not hesitate. Accompanied by stockman Sam Isaacs, Grace rode her horse straight into the boiling surf and saved as many people as she could. Like many of the passengers and crew on board the Georgette, Grace was an ordinary person who showed great bravery in an extraordinary situation.

'Step into the fascinating world of nineteenth-century sea travel and pioneering life, as you experience the exciting tale of the Georgette and the remarkable people involved in her final voyage.' (From the publisher's website.)
