Australian Non Fiction - Published: 3/Mar/2020 - ISBN: 9781760529222

Cassandra Pybus's ancestors told a story of an old Aboriginal woman who would wander across their farm on Bruny Island, in south-east Tasmania, in the 1850s and 1860s. As a child, Cassandra didn't know this woman was Truganini, and that Truganini was walking over the country of her clan, the Nuenonne. For nearly seven decades, Truganini lived through a psychological and cultural shift more extreme than we can imagine. Cassandra has examined the original eyewitness accounts to write Truganini's extraordinary story in full. Truganini's story is inspiring and haunting - a journey through the apocalypse.
