About the Author

Cassandra Pybus is an award-winning author and a distinguished historian. She is author of twelve books and has held research professorships at the University of Sydney, Georgetown University in Washington DC, the University of Texas and King's College London. She is descended from the colonist who received the largest free land grant on Truganini's traditional country of Bruny Island.


'That Pybus has been able to retrieve this small, tough, canny woman is a genuine contribution to our evolving national discourse.' The Weekend Australian

'The outstanding achievement of Truganini that Cassandra Pybus rescues her cast of characters from the shadows of history and places them firmly and convincingly on the page as real people, with real emotions, real hopes and fears.' The Canberra Times

'Pybus writes beautifully,with great economy of style and admirable emotional restraint. Her under-statement rendersthe bare bones of the saga, as the tragedy mounts, both heart-wringing and gutwrenching.' - History Australia
