Revealing the story of the single family of Aborigines on Kangaroo Island, Australia, who would grow to become the island's largest land owners—and then mysteriously disappear—this dramatic work of history explores what became of this family and why they left their land. What emerges is a saga that is both remarkable and sadly familiar and a fascinating microcosm of European expansion in both Australia and the United States. Also included are pertinent discussions of the profound effect aboriginal displacement has had on the Australian psyche.

“This is a wonderful book. It combines fine writing, sharp analysis and skillful storytelling. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in the fate of Aboriginal communities in ‘settled’ Australia.”  —Henry Reynolds, professor, University of Tasmania
